Roseman University of Health Sciences - College of Nursing accepts qualified international students and follows the Immigration and Naturalization (INS) rules and regulations on the issuance of Form I-20.
The College of Nursing curriculum requires a background check of all students in our BSN program. Because of this, all students must have a social security number. For more information, please visit the Social Security website.
Foreign (non-U.S.) Coursework
Applicants who wish to have their non-U.S. coursework included in their application review (for purposes of documenting a degree earned or prerequisite coursework) must provide an official evaluation of an independently conducted verification of academic credentials by an education evaluation service. This assessment must include a course-by-course evaluation showing courses completed, credit hours and letter grade equivalency as well as validation of US equivalency of all degrees earned and accreditation. Independent evaluations will be accepted from World Education Services (WES), or Josef Silny and Associates (JSA). Evaluations must be official and received by the College of Nursing in its original sealed envelope.
Prerequisite courses listed on the evaluation must include whether or not the course included a lab component, if applicable. Please note that not all coursework may be transferable. A course description and syllabus may be requested to provide additional information. Transfer of core nursing prerequisites is at the discretion of the College of Nursing. Prerequisite courses completed at a non-U.S. institution requires an course-by-course evaluation from an accepted foreign-coursework evaluation organization.
Note to ABSN applicants: The College of Nursing requires a Bachelor Degree in another field be completed prior to entry in the Roseman ABSN program. The Bachelor's degree must be earned at a Regionally or Nationally accredited post-secondary institution. If the Bachelor's degree was completed outside of the United States, an evaluation must be completed by World Evaluation Services or Josef Silny and Associates. Evaluations must indicate graduating with a Bachelors degree from an institution which is deemed equivalent to a regionally-accredited US institution.
Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL)
