Puget Sound is now accepting applications for Fall 2017 admission!
Below you will find a complete list of requirements for international first-year applicants. If you have any questions, please contact Elizabeth Orr. You can reach Elizabeth at firstname.lastname@example.org or 1+ 253.879.3985.
Complete the Common Application for First-Year Admission, including the essay and $50 (US) application fee, and submit your application online by the appropriate deadline.
Please fill out this section completely. If you agree to fill out the optional application questions or if you indicate interest in the Business Leadership Program, Honors Program, and/or the Lillis and Matelich scholarships in this section then you will need to fill out the Writing Supplement. Your ability to access the Writing Supplement is triggered by your responses to the Member Questions. Complete these applications only if you are interested in applying for these programs.
Students applying Early Decision I or Early Decision II must review and sign the terms of the agreement. You can submit the agreement electronically through the Common Application Member Questions section or print out a PDF version and mail or fax a copy to our office.
The School Report gives us information about your school, your curriculum, and your performance. Complete your portion of this form and give to your school counselor or other administrator.
Please also arrange to have official transcripts of all work completed at the high school and/or college level forwarded directly from the institution(s) attended to the Puget Sound Office of Admission. Your high school counselor can submit your transcript with the School Report section of the Common Application. Students sitting for school certificates should request the Examination Board of Council to forward results directly to the university. Transcripts must be translated in English.
We request one recommendation from a counselor or advisor at your current school and one from a teacher at your current school. The Counselor Evaluation and Teacher Evaluation forms should be completed and sent to Puget Sound by the recommender. If you do not have a counselor at your school, please have another school official such as a headmaster, principal, or advisor submit the evaluation on your behalf. Complete your portion of this form and give to your teacher. Submit electronically in the School Forms section of the Common Application.
Some international students are not required to submit the ACT or SAT and the TOEFL or IELTS scores. Learn more about applying test-optional. You qualify to apply test-optional if:
Puget Sound strongly recommends, but does not require, an interview through InitialView or Vericant. An unscripted interview allows you to discuss your unique education and personal background, helping us to get to know you better. InitialView and Vericant will conduct the interview and record the conversation so that it can be reviewed by our office. Alumni and admission officers may be also available to conduct interviews in-person or via Skype. Please contact Elizabeth Orr at email@example.com to find out more.
While not a required part of the application, all accepted international students (including Canadian students) must submit the College Board's International Student Certification of Finances if they plan to enroll. You can complete the PDF and submit it to the Office of Admission by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or fax at 253.879.3993.
