International Students

To be eligible for enrollment at Bastyr University, all international student applicants must submit an application, application fee, letters of recommendation (if needed), documentation of sufficient funds, an evaluation sent from a foreign credential evaluation service, a copy of their passport and a current photograph. Applicants who speak English as a second language are required to submit official exam results outlined in the section Applicants Whose First Language Is Not English. Official transcripts from any college or university outside the United States must be translated and evaluated, course-by-course, by an independent, N.A.C.E.S.-accredited evaluation service. There is a charge for this evaluation. The service will forward the evaluated transcript to Bastyr University at the applicant’s request.

International students must enroll as full-time, degree-seeking students and comply with all related immigration policies for the F-1 student visa program.

Federal laws require that international students maintain adequate health insurance while attending Bastyr University. All admitted F-1 students are required to purchase coverage through Bastyr University or submit a waiver form providing documentation of comparable insurance coverage valid in the United States for the duration of their study. International students are not eligible for federal student aid.
