Florida Christian College seeks to provide an education not only for students living in the United States, but for international students as well. The LEAD Admissions office is happy to help you determine whether or not the LEAD program at Florida Christian College is right for you.
International students have a couple of options when it comes to applying for admission with the LEAD program. Please note the following requirements:
Countries where English is the primary language:
Academic transcripts – Send all transcripts from any secondary (high school) or postsecondary (college/university) school you have attended to: Florida Christian College LEAD Program 1011 Bill Beck Blvd. Kissimmee, FL 34744. Transcripts must be in a sealed envelope in order to be received as official. If your records are not written in English, we will need to receive an official English translation of each one.
1. International Student Information: The Government of the United States requires proof of support before accepting any student from another country into the U.S. Such support can come as a written affidavit from friends or organizations from your home country, or if you have relatives or friends living in the U.S. who are willing to support your educational endeavors, they can forward such promise to the College and it will be received. There is no federal or state financial aid available for international students. Florida Christian College has no scholarship money available for foreign students with the occasional exception of missionaries and their families.
FCC is under the authority of the United States Government to have verification of proof of support before it can issue the I-20 form to foreign students. This I-20 form is needed to come into the U.S. and to obtain a foreign student visa. FCC will only accept payments made in the form of International Postal Money Orders. You must also have money in a local bank while attending school.
Florida Christian College is affiliated with the Independent Christian Churches and Churches of Christ. It is important to have the endorsement of a missionary that is known to the college. The missionary must know the student in the setting of his or her home nation and the endorsement must include the missionary's assessment of the student's plans for Christian service.
All foreign prospects must have money in a local bank for a return trip.
2. The Admissions Committee acts to admit you when your admissions materials become available to them. These materials become the property of FCC and are not returnable.
3. Additional information regarding the college may be obtained by contacting the State Board of Independent Colleges and Universities, Department of Education, Tallahassee.
4. FCC admits students of any race, color, sex, handicap, and national or ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. The college does not discriminate in administration of its educational or admission policies, scholarship and loan programs, or athletic and other school administered programs.
