Preparing Global Leaders

The King’s College is privileged to have students from all over the world who share our desire to shape and lead global public and private institutions. Throughout the years our students have come from over 40 different countries, contributing to the rich cultural tapestry at King’s. To prepare students for influence, our curriculum requires a high level of written and oral communication. Our requirements exist so that successful candidates can truly thrive in the classroom setting and in life after graduation.

Application Process

Apply

If you have any questions before you apply, you can connect with an admissions counselor who specializes in working with your specific needs and questions. On your application, choose “International Freshman” if you have just completed or are enrolled in secondary school and have not yet attended college, university, or post-secondary school. Choose “International Transfer” if you have graduated high school (secondary school) and are currently attending a college or university in the U.S. or abroad.

Apply for Admission
Submit Transcript

You will need to submit transcripts from all secondary and post-secondary schools you have attended. You or a school counselor may send unofficial or official transcripts, by email to admissionsoffice@tkc.edu, by fax (877-349-0231) or by snail mail:

Office of Admissions
The King’s College
56 Broadway
New York, NY 10004

Transcripts must be in English and include a grade point average converted to a 4.0 scale. The King’s College does not offer translation or conversion services. It is the student’s responsibility to make sure his or her transcripts meet the admissions requirements. Grades can be converted using a reputable third-party conversion service, such as those found on the NACES website. Please submit both the original and translated copies of your transcripts. Talk to your admissions counselor with any questions.

If applicable, common examinations/diplomas such as the International Baccalaureate (IB) or A-Level/ AS-Level exams should be submitted and will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis. Proof of high school (secondary school) completion is required.

Submit Test Scores

If you have taken the ACT or SAT and plan to apply for merit-based financial aid, you will need to submit those scores. Previous schools sometimes include ACT or SAT scores on your transcript, but if they don’t, please complete an online request for ACT scores (use school code 2784) or SAT scores (use school code 2871).

If you have 30 or more college credits, SAT and ACT scores are not required.

The King’s College also requires international students to submit TOEFL or IELTS scores because our academic curriculum requires a strong grasp of the English language.

  • Minimum TOEFL: 83 (Internet Based Test)
  • Minimum IELTS: 6.5

King’s may choose to waive this requirement once you have submitted your transcripts and test scores and completed an entrance interview.
