Based on ICC’s mission statement, foreign students will be admitted to Itawamba Community College only if they can prove such ties to the College’s five-county district as being a family member of an area resident or being a foreign exchange student in a district high school. In addition to completing all requirements for admission to Itawamba Community College, foreign students must meet these additional requirements: 

  1. Pass the English Equivalent Test (TOEFL) with a score of 500 or more. 
  2. Provide translated financial statement from a sponsor. 
  3. Provide translated proof of medical insurance coverage. 
  4. Provide a transcript certified by WES credential services to the Registrar/Director of Admissions by July 15 for fall semester admission or November 15 for spring semester admission. 

Note:  J1 status (Au Pair) foreign students may submit an official J1 Cultural Exchange Visa and documentation of approved status by the U.S. goAUPAIR Department rather than certifying transcripts through WES credential Services. 

Note:  An I20 will be issued when admission requirements are met. 

Note:  Undocumented international students currently residing in the United States must prove ties to the College’s five-county district in order to meet admission requirements. These ties are the same as those stated above for the admission of foreign students.  Undocumented students will be billed at the out-of-state tuition rate and will have to meet standard admission requirements. If the high school or college previously attended by an undocumented student is outside the United States, the transcript submitted to Itawamba Community College must be certified by WES credential services.
