Hood College values different perspectives and strives to cultivate a diverse student body. We welcome students from international backgrounds, and we want to help you make Hood your home in the United States!
How to Apply
International students can apply to begin at Hood during the spring or fall semesters. For more information about the application process, please click here. All applicants will be automatically considered for financial aid in the form of international student grants.
Congratulations! Once you've been accepted, your first step is to submit your non-refundable $350 deposit here. This confirms that you will be attending Hood; it saves your place in the incoming class and it will be applied toward your first tuition payment.
If you are a first-time student in the U.S., a member of our staff will complete your Form I-20, which will be mailed to your permanent address in your home country. You will then need to pay the SEVIS I-901 fee and make an appointment at the U.S. consulate or embassy in your home country for your visa interview.
If you are currently studying in the U.S., a member of our staff will work with you to have your Form I-20 transferred to Hood College.
Once your visa has been granted, Travis Eichelberger (firstname.lastname@example.org) will reach out to you to coordinate your airport pickup and arrival at Hood. We are excited to have you joining our community!
