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, by fax (877-349-0231) or by mail:

Office of Admissions
The King’s College

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 the Premium GPA Converter on or 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

The King’s College requires international students to submit a score from one of the following tests because our academic curriculum requires a strong grasp of the English language.

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

If you have 24 or more college credits, we do not take SAT and ACT scores into consideration.
