Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
Do I need the TOEFL
to study in the university?
Yes. You need a TOEFL score of
550 on the written test, 213 on the computer based test, or 80 on the internet based test. However,
if you graduate from the English Language Institute, you do not need any TOEFL
score to study at UHD..
Can I take only
one session of English instead of two sessions?
Yes. However, a student on
a UHD I-20 must stay 2 sessions before transferring to another U.S. school.
Any student may stay one session and return home.
Can I just apply
now and bring my documents when I come?
No. This is not possible,
even if you have an educational consultant who is applying for you.
Must I send original
The application must be online or original. Documents such as bank letters and the affidavit of support can be scanned and emailed. School records must be originals.
Can I send my documents
No. But you can use a faxed application
form to fill out. Just send it back to us by mail.
How long will I
We have seven levels of English
in the Intensive English Program. You will be tested and placed in the appropriate
level. You can finish one level each session (6 levels in a year).
Can you meet me
at the airport?
You can easily go from the airport
to your housing without help. However, we work with a private company
which arranges airport pick-up (and other services) for a fee. Contact Student
Transportation Services for more information: e-mail email@example.com
What should I do
We have a full Host Family program.
We can also help you find an apartment locator. If you cannot find housing,
call us for assistance.
Can I get a scholarship
now for studying English?
No, not from this university.
The ELI does offer a scholarship, but it is competitive and is only available
during certain levels of study. Other UHD scholarships become available
to you after you are enrolled in credit classes. There are outside organizations
that offer scholarships and financial aid to students. A good place
to begin your search is at College Scholarships.com.
If I am a resident
or US citizen, can I get financial aid?
aid is not available until you are taking credit courses at the university.
What happens if
I have to leave unexpectedly?
A student who has a family emergency
may return home for a session or two. See our refund policy and we also apply tuition to other sessions if you are returning. If the answer to your question
is not here, Send
us an email and it will be answered by an instructor or current student.
