SUNY Sullivan International Student application

Be sure to have the person reporting your proficiency level sign and date the report.

FSA-3 (English Language Proficiency Report)

SUNY Sullivan generally uses World Education Services (WES), or Globe Language Services, Inc., both located in New York City. You may, however, choose any service from the Association of International Credential Evaluators (AICE) or the National Association of Credential Evaluation Services (NACES).

Please contact the evaluation service you intend to use for specific instructions. The evaluation must state the highest level of education achieved as well as the date of graduation. Documents must carry an official seal and signature of a school or government official as well as that of the evaluation service.

You must receive a minimum score of 61 on the internet-based test (ibTOEFL). Please visit for the most up-to-date information about the TOEFL program.

Carefully document the sources of financial support as requested in Part II. Please make sure to have your financial institution fill out the appropriate section as well as state the amount in U.S. currency. You must demonstrate that you have access to this dollar amount in cash before you can begin your studies.

Form FSA-4 (Foreign Student Financial Statement)

Please request the cost breakdown list for this Health Insurance Plan for one full academic year from our Admissions office at

Documentation must show two (2) vaccinations for Measles, Mumps, and Rubella (MMR). Otherwise, you should arrange to have your MMR vaccinations immediately. It is a New York State law that all students show proof of immunization. Students must comply with New York State health law regarding meningitis.

In addition to your Immunization record, as of January 2022, all students with an on-campus presence must be fully vaccinated for the COVID-19 virus (At this time, students registered 100% online are exempt from this requirement unless they are using on campus services). Failure to provide the required documentation will result in administrative withdrawal from in-seat classes.
