This section contains information for international students who have already completed some undergraduate coursework, either in the United States or abroad and who do NOT need further English training before entering university level programs. Our application process is simple.
If you first want to study English, then enter university-level programs when your English is proficient, please see the information about our conditional admission.
Maryville College has welcomed international undergraduate students since the mid-1800s and 1884 was the year our first international student was awarded a Maryville College degree. We look forward to getting to know you, no matter where you come from!
Get to know more about us by reading about our college and the surrounding area.
Maryville College awards Bachelor’s degrees (B.A., B.S. and B.M.) in over 35 areas, including business, international business, biology, chemistry, biochemistry, computer science, engineering, environmental studies, psychology, literature, sociology, and many others.
We do not offer graduate programs at the masters or doctors level. Maryville College is a liberal arts college, which means students study a wide range of courses both within and in addition to their major subject area.
Students who have completed coursework at another college or university may be considered for admission to Maryville College in either the fall or spring semester. Generally, academic courses in which the student has earned a grade of "C" or above may be transferred and applied toward graduation requirements. College credits will be evaluated upon receipt of an official college transcript. Applicants are provided with an estimate of transfer credit upon request. Generally, applicants wishing to transfer from other U.S. institutions of higher education should have earned a minimum grade point average (GPA) of 2.5.
Transfer applications from U.S. colleges and universities are evaluated under the following guidelines:

We do not require SAT, ACT, TOEFL, IELTS, EIKEN/STEP, PTE Academic or other standardized tests. However, the English proficiency tests (TOEFL, IELTS, EIKEN/STEP, PTE Academic) are recommended, to help us and to help you know your language ability.
If you do not have English proficiency test scores, or your scores are lower than required, you can still apply for conditional admission. You will be tested upon arrival at Maryville College and placed into appropriate classes depending on your scores here. Students who pass the proficiency exam can begin taking college-level courses and students who need more English training will be enrolled in the Intensive English (ESL) program. You may get college credit for your ESL studies (toward your degree at Maryville College).
Scores required for unconditional admission:
Note Regarding Language Proficiency: ALL new students are given an English proficiency test when they begin studies here; any student without the required scores who does not pass our English proficiency exam may be placed initially into our intensive English program (ESL). Those students can begin taking College courses once they have passed the proficiency exam given each semester.
