Admissions Requirements

Niagara University works on rolling admissions. We recommend that international students submit their applications as soon as possible to allow adequate time for processing and immigration paperwork to be completed.

In order to be considered for admission to NU, you must complete the following:

  1. The Online NU Application and Common Application are free for all applicants.
  2. Native English Speakers: Please submit an SAT or ACT. Nonnative English Speakers must submit a TOEFL exam and SAT or ACT (if taken).  
  3. Transcripts: If you live in an English-speaking country or attend an American or English-speaking school abroad, you can directly submit all of your secondary school and college transcripts to Niagara University for review. If this does not apply, all transcripts must be sent to Niagara University via World Education Services, or WES. The WES Basic:course by course evaluation is required. If you prefer to select WES ICAP, they will retain your documents should you need another evaluation in the future. Your credentials will NOT be reviewed without this outside evaluation.
  4. Using your English writing abilities, an essay or written statement is required of every applicant for undergraduate admission. This statement should be roughly 250 words in length and discuss why you have chosen your major, or why you are considering Niagara University.

Be prepared to provide financial documentation for immigration purposes.
