Application Process

The first step to starting your new life with Harrison College is to apply! We’ve made the application process as effortless as possible. By following these five simple steps, you’ll quickly be on your way to beginning education with Harrison.

Step 1:  Complete International Application Form

Fill out the international application, then ask your admissions advisor for your International Student Financial Affidavit form.

Step 2:  Meet with your Admissions Advisor

Here at Harrison International, we want to make the application process as easy as possible. That’s why meeting with a Partner Representative is so important. Whether you choose to take classes in your country at our partner institution or by studying abroad in Indianapolis, our Partner Representatives will help you explore all of the options available to you based on your educational experience. They will help you determine the correct degree program, start dates and enrollment requirements; provide the necessary application documents; and answer any questions that you have.  

Step 3:  Proof of Language Proficiency

  1. Pass the Navigate Critical Thinking Assessment (CTA). A list of minimum required scores for each program of study may be found in the Admissions Test Requirements table within the Harrison College catalog [link to]. Navigate CTA scores are valid for 18 months. Applicants may also qualify for admission through submission of one of the following alternatives to the CTA.
  2. Passing Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) or International English Language Testing System (IELTS) scores. All applicants to Harrison programs must be able to read, speak and write in English. To document that potential students have the required mastery of the English language, Harrison requires foreign applicants for whom English is not the first language to demonstrate mastery of English through either the admission test process or the completion of at least one year of full-time enrollment at a university of college in a country where English is the official language. Applicants to Harrison programs who reside outside of the United States, for which English is not the primary language, must submit acceptable TOEFL or IELTS scores in order to be accepted to Harrison.

TOEFL: Applicants must have completed the Internet-based version of the test (TOEFL iBT) within the past 10 years and have achieved a total score of 65, with a minimum writing score of 18. Applicants use code number 4441 to indicate Harrison College as a score recipient for their TOEFL.

IELTS: Applicants may submit IELTS scores, which have been taken in the past two years and achieved a minimum score of 5.0. Applicants must contact the test center directly where they took the IELTS test and request that the official test scores be sent directly to the address below. An institutional code is NOT required.

TOEFL and IELTS Score reports should be submitted to:
International Operations
Harrison College
500 North MeridianStreet
Indianapolis, IN 46204

Alternative assessment measures to the TOEFL or IELTS score may apply to cohort groups in which other assessments are approved and/or in which required, non-credit English Language programming complements the cohort course work, with permission of the associate provost and vice president for academic affairs and the international office.

Step 4: Finalize your Enrollment Process

As an international student, you will have to complete the following document to finalize your application: 

  1. Financial Affidavit for F-1 Students
  2. Official financial statement.  This statement must be on bank letterhead showing funds available for studies. Sorry, no photocopies or faxes will be accepted.
  3. Interview with Harrison College. A Harrison International Representative will conduct an additional interview with you, thus completing some of the necessary steps to process your I-20 letter.
