“My favorite part [of The King’s College] definitely has to be that the classrooms are smaller and we are able to have a closer relationship with our professors. This has been vital in my role at the college as the professors have helped me tremendously in my studies as well as my personal life.”
Abena Anim-Somuah (’18)
“I decided to come to King’s because I wanted to go to college in NYC and King’s had the best opportunities to guide me on my career path. The Christian element of King’s was also a great asset as I get to build my faith in an academic setting. With small class sizes and great professors, it allows you to make the effort to engage with your academics.”
Zachary Owens (’18)
“My favorite part of King’s is being known. I walk through the doors everyday and see people I know and people who know me. It’s a great contrast to New York City, which can sometimes feel cold and uninviting. Professors and students at King’s genuinely care about each other and seek connection unlike in any other school that I have heard of.”

The tuition cost for international students is $37,000 per year. International students are also eligible to compete for one of three full-tuition scholarships via the Founders Scholarship Competition.

- Minimum Duolingo: 105
King’s may choose to waive the above requirements once you have submitted your transcripts and writing sample and completed an entrance interview.
SAT or ACT scores are optional for spring and fall 2022 enrollment due to the COVID-19 pandemic. If you wish to submit scores, you may complete an online request for ACT scores (use school code 2784) or SAT scores (use school code 2871). Previous schools sometimes include ACT or SAT scores on your transcript.
