Extra Time Allowance on Exams


Students whose primary language is not English have the option of requesting more time to take exams (time and a half).  The Department of Foreign Languages will evaluate English proficiency for international students, and the Academic Skills Center will evaluate U.S. residents or citizens.  A verification form will be given to those who qualify for this accommodation, which is good for one semester.  This form must be presented to the instructor at least one week before the exam for which accommodation is needed.

Students in the Intensive English Program do not qualify for extra time on exams. 

Additional Time on Exams Request form


Foreign Language/Culture Requirement Waiver

If your language of instruction in your home country was not English, but you have completed the English Competency requirement (usually accomplished by taking English 110 or equivalent), you may be able to use ENGL 110 this to satisfy your Foreign Language competency. To reflect this on your Degree Audit, you need to meet with Dr. Carter Smith, the Chair of the Languages Department, in Centennial Hall 4923 or call 836-4287 to schedule an appointment with him.


Accident and Sickness Insurance


All students are required to purchase health, evacuation, and repatriation insurance each semester throughout their entire period of their studies. Insurance is a requirement of the students' visa. Students must pay for insurance within one week of arrival to the United States. Students will not be registered with USCIS and be able to register for classes until insurance is paid in full each semester.

Students are required to purchase insurance for all dependents who may accompany them to the United States.

The Center for International Education has chosen to work with AMA & Associates, LLC and Rust International to provide insurance for international students. Students may also purchase on their own additional insurance coverage through Rust International Associates, if desired.
