Admission Requirements and Procedures

Holy Names University accepts international students on a regular basis. This is done to provide a genuine, cross-cultural educational experience for both international and domestic students. Holy Names University's goal is to provide opportunities to intelligent and outgoing students who desire an educational experience in the United States.

While deserving respect for their own cultural backgrounds, international students must also be willing to participate in national and local cultures of the United States. The international student will be treated as an equal to all other students with regard to academic and social policies. HNU is authorized by law to enroll non-immigrant students.

Important: International applicants are individuals who are a citizen of a country other than the United States, and need a visa in order to study or live in the U.S. If you are a U.S. citizen or a permanent resident of the U.S., regardless of where you go to school, you are not considered an international applicant. International students are required to obtain an F-1 Visa to study at HNU. Upon acceptance, the University will issue an I-20 form which will allow the student to apply for the F-1 visa.
