SUNY Geneseo offre une bourse de mérite académique internationale 

Les candidats internationaux n'ont pas besoin de remplir de candidatures supplémentaires pour être pris en compte pour les bourses énumérées ci-dessous. Pour être considéré pour ces bourses, vous devez soumettre une demande d'admission complète et fournir tous les documents académiques requis.

1) International Student Academic Merit Scholarship Awards

These tuition scholarships range from $5,000 USD – $9,000 USD per year and are awarded at the time of admission. Awards are based on outstanding academic achievements as evidenced by grades on transcripts (or mark sheets), results on national examinations.

Academic scholarships are renewable for up to four years with a GPA of 3.0 or higher. International applicants admitted to SUNY Geneseo are automatically considered for an International Student Scholarship. Freshman (first-year) and transfer students are eligible for the International Student Scholarships. 

The priority deadline for scholarships is January 1 for Fall semester and October 1 for Spring semester.  Scholarships will be awarded on a case-by-case basis as available after those dates.

2) Ambassador Apartments World Citizen Scholarships for International Students

Two awards for the international students who best demonstrate awareness and understanding of what it means to be a world citizen. Endowed by Mr. Frank Csapo of the Ambassador Apartments. The Director of the International Student & Scholar Services office and the International Scholarship Committee choose the recipients.

3) VanArsdale Scholarships

One award is made each year to support an international student who demonstrates excellence in academics at Geneseo.  Endowed by Mr. And Mrs. VanArsdale, the recipient is chosen by the Director of the International Student & Scholar Services office and the International Scholarship Committee.

4) Muriel A. Daniels International Endowed Scholarship

This scholarship is supported by an endowment established by Robert and Marilyn Lyon in honor of Marilyn's mother, Muriel. It provides a scholarship to an outstanding SUNY Geneseo international student with preference given to a Canadian student with a solid academic record (minimum 3.0 GPA) who demonstrates leadership, respect, loyalty and integrity.

How to Apply

To be considered for admission to SUNY Geneseo, please submit the following documents:

1. Completed Application Form

Complete the Common Application or SUNY Application.

2. Appropriate Academic Records

Freshman Applicants

We also require any official external examination results, if this applies to your school or home country's education system. (These external examination records may be the results of examinations by regional, national or international testing authorities. In many countries, students take an external examination at the end of secondary school studies.  Examples include Standard X & XII, IGCSE, WASSCE, CXC, Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate, etc.) 

In some countries, the final external examination results become available too late to meet our application deadlines. If that is your situation, please include that information on your application form. 

Transfer Applicants 

For current college/university students transferring into SUNY Geneseo, we require official university transcripts up to your most recent completed semester. 

Transcripts from foreign universities must be translated into English. In most cases, we will require course descriptions or syllabi in English in order to review your courses for transfer credit to SUNY Geneseo. 

If you have completed fewer than 2 semesters of full-time university study, please also submit your official secondary school (high school) transcripts.

3. Proof of English Proficiency

The International Admission Committee requires that all students must provide proof of their English language abilities.

Due to the ongoing Covid-19 situation, we are aware that many exams are currently postponed or cancelled.  In order to provide prospective students with another way to prove English Proficiency, SUNY Geneseo will now accept the Duolingo English Test.    

Official results from the following English proficiency exams are accepted:

  • TOEFL (internet-based minimum score: 75)
  • Institution Code: 2540
  • IELTS (minimum score of 6.5 overall. No section can be below 6.0)
  • PTE (minimum 58)
  • iTEP (minimum 3.7)
  • MET 
  • Eiken Grade Pre-1
  • Duolingo English Test (minimum 105)
  • Cambridge English

If you are transferring from a college or university within the United States, successful completion of at least 2 full semesters of academic coursework (24 credit hours) with a cumulative GPA of at least 3.0 may be a sufficient demonstration of English proficiency.

Students applying from high schools in the United States, or from English-medium high schools outside the United States, may have waivers of this testing requirement considered on a case-by-case basis. 

4. One letter of recommendation

At least one letter of recommendation, preferably from a teacher, is recommended.

5.  Personal Statement 

Tell us a little about yourself! The personal statement should be about one page long, detailing your interest in SUNY Geneseo and your major of choice.  

6.  Financial Statement of Support 

The financial statement of support is required before an I-20 will be issued but does not necessarily have to be submitted at the time of application.

7.  Passport ID page photocopy

8.  SAT/ACT (not required - test optional FAQ)

If you have taken the exam and wish to submit your scores, the International Admission Committee is happy to consider them. Students graduating from high school within the United States are highly encouraged to submit their SAT or ACT scores. 

Any documents you wish to submit by email should be sent to isss@geneseo.edu
