International Students


F-1 students who have questions about the new SEVIS message should contact International Student Advisor, Brad McClenny ( Grayson College is working on scheduling so that F-1 students will be in compliance. International students are encouraged to register for classes as soon as possible. 

International students wishing to study here as an F-1 student must complete the following procedures to be considered for admission.

Step 1: English Language Proficiency

All tests must be sent directly to Grayson College. Students must submit a passing TOEFL or IELTS score, or must have completed ENG 1301 or its equivalent at another institution to qualify for admission to credit courses at GC. Passing TOEFL scores are: paper: 500; Internet-based TOEFL: 61. The IELTS minimum academic band score required is 5.0.
