By Jordan Friedman
World Education Services

Located in the Buffalo suburb of Amherst, N.Y., Daemen College is a liberal arts institution offering a number of undergraduate and graduate degree options to its students.

According to the Daemen website, international students can find valuable resources pertaining to their study abroad experience in the U.S. through the Global Programs Office. The office provides insight and tips about immigration regulations, U.S. culture, finances, and personal issues, while also assisting students throughout their tenure at Daemen by offering advice on programs at the school.

Undergraduate International Student Requirements:
  • Proof of English proficiency: Any international students who do not have English as a native language must submit scores from the TOEFL or IELTS exams. The minimum TOEFL score for admission is 79, and the minimum IELTS score is 6.5. Those students who meet the academic requirements with a TOEFL score of 69 or an IEFLTS score of 5.5 can be considered for conditional admission if they complete an ESL program to improve their English language skills and meet the minimum requirements.
  • GPA: Undergraduate students must have a minimum GPA of 2.3 to be considered for admission; graduate students need a 3.0.
  • Transcripts: Undergraduate freshmen must submit all secondary transcripts of mark sheets directly to the student’s school. However, international undergraduate transfers and graduate students must submit their transcripts through a credit evaluation service such as World Education Services. The credential evaluation will help show admissions officers grade and course equivalencies in the U.S. education system.
