Roger Williams University accepts the Common Application. You must complete and submit both the Common Application and the Roger Williams University Supplement to be considered for admission at RWU.
Roger Williams University defines an international student to be a non-U.S. citizen or non-U.S. Permanent Resident (Green Card Holder). Exceptions apply if you are currently in the U.S. in one of the following statuses: Refugee, Asylum, Parolee or Confidential Entrant.
You are eligible to apply for admission to Roger Williams University as an international undergraduate student if you’ve completed the equivalent of a United States secondary school education (approximately 12 years of formal education starting at age six). You must have either an appropriate diploma or satisfactory results on a leaving examination.
Roger Williams University does not require the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) and International students may be admitted to RWU regardless of their English ability. However, we recommend that students who have taken the TOEFL submit their scores for review in order to receive the best placement for their English level – either directly into their undergraduate program, the RWU ESL Bridge Program, or the ELS Language Center at RWU.
All documents written in a foreign language must be accompanied by a notarized English translation. Please note that both documents are required—the original in your first language and the English translation. Applicants must submit all of the following credentials to Roger Williams University. Your teachers and guidance counselors can do this electronically or by mailing them to:
