STEP 2: Submit your Official ACT & SAT Reports

Trevecca's ACT code is 4016.
Trevecca's SAT code is 1809.

Submit an official ACT report.  The ACT is available in local designated testing centers. The results will automatically be sent to the University if the applicant specifies Trevecca as his or her college choice (ACT code is 4016 & SAT code is 1809.). The ACT database is used in academic advising and is the official academic documentation for admission for First-time freshmen. SAT scores are acceptable, although ACT is preferred. Applicants are not required to submit the essay component of these exams. An existing ACT or SAT report can be requested by visiting their website or calling them.  For the ACT, see or  For the SAT, see   

The ACT/SAT are aptitude tests used to determine college readiness.  Trevecca also uses them to determine entry-level courses for English composition, mathematics, and reading. Students who place at higher levels will be able to waive beginning courses. Students who do not demonstrate college-level competencies in these areas will be required to successfully complete developmental courses in one or two semesters of their first year to reach the necessary competencies to qualify for college level courses.

STEP 3: Submit your Academic Transcript(s)

All Freshmen and Transfer students should go through a foreign credential evaluation company for an evaluation. Companies like the one listed below ensure that the US equivalency of your grades/marks is represented in the admissions process.  Request an official high school transcript to be mailed directly from the institution to World Education Services. See the WES website for details on how to send and who should send official transcripts. Send transcripts to the following credential evaluator:

World Education Services, Inc., (WES)
PO Box 5087, 
Bowling Green Station, 
New York, NY  10274-5087


If your school does not print transcripts in English, then you must use an agency who will translate the transcript.  Email for a list of translators if you need them.  

STEP 4: Submit your Official TOEFL scores or other proof of English Proficiency

The test required is the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL).  A minimum score of 500 is required on the paper-based test; 173 is required on the computer-based test; and a minimum score of 61 is required on the internet-based test.  See  on the internet to sign up to take the TOEFL.  

If you have other proof of English proficiency, see the TNU academic catalog ( for a description of how you can have the TOEFL waived as a requirement.

STEP 6: Certification of Financial Support

The budget figures listed in this document are supported by budget figures obtained from TNU’s Financial Aid Office.  Since immigration regulations require all international students arriving in F-1 Student visa status to be full-time with proof of financial support for the entire academic year, the TNU budget numbers on this form are based on an academic year of 8 to 12 months and full-time status.  No international student may work off-campus without permission from the USA government and especially not during the first year enrolled at TNU.
