International Admission Requirements for 2022-2023

Below is detailed information about the requirements for admission to the University of Evansville for different groups of students. Admission works on a rolling basis. Our application opens on August 1 for the following year, so we encourage students to apply early in their senior year to be able to get their admission decision, scholarships, and visa in order.

To allow you enough time to complete the student visa process in a normal year, we recommend that you complete your application by, at the very latest, June 1 for fall start students and November 1 for spring start students. We find it is a far better experience for students to apply early so that the preparation and visa process to get here is not rushed!
