- If you are transferring to MATC from a school in the U.S., submit a Transfer-in Form. This form must be completed by the International Student Advisor of the school the student is transferring from. It must include the applicant's authorization to release information requested in the form. This form should be forwarded to the MATC International Student Admissions Office.
- Include TOEFL scores. Please visit www.toefl.org for information. MATC requires the following scores: computer-based (190), paper-based (520), iBT (68), IELTS (5.5) Click here to see TOEFL Exemptions.
- Health insurance is mandatory. All international students must provide complete health/medical insurance information as requested in the admissions packet.
- Make copies of all the materials for your reference, and send all materials by first-class mail to the MATC International Student Admissions Office. If your application is not complete, MATC will notify you. Clearly label the envelope as follows:

- Upon receipt of all required documents, the International Student Admissions Office will release your Certificate of Eligibility for an F-1 visa, the I-20 form.
- After you receive your I-20 form and all your supporting documents, apply at the nearest U.S. Consulate or Embassy in your country for an F-1 visa.
- If you are granted a visa to enter the United States and to study at MATC, make travel arrangements to report to MATC at least one week before the beginning date of classes. This is mandatory.
NOTE: Failure to contact an International Student Advisor will result in your being reported as "non compliant" with the Department of Homeland Security.
