Baker College welcomes applicants from countries other than the United States in our undergraduate and graduate degree programs.
International students are welcome to attend through one of our three programs: our Online Program, our Resident Program, and the Global Bridge Program.
With our Online Program, students are able to earn a degree from anywhere in the world. Many of our undergraduate and graduate degree programs are fully available online -- no on-campus classes or meetings required. To apply for our Online Program for international students, you’ll need to:
Provide a transcript of your official academic record
Demonstrate proficiency in the English language
You must submit your transcript to verify satisfactory completion of secondary school or its equivalent, as well as any post-secondary school (college/university)
If your transcript is in a language other than English, it must be accompanied by a certified, literal English translation.
You must use a credential evaluating service approved by the National Association of Credential Evaluation Services. Visit www.naces.org to select a service provider.
The approximate fee for this service is $160.
Ask the credential evaluating service to send your translated transcript directly to the campus you plan to attend: either Baker College Center for Graduate Studies or Baker College Online.
All supporting documents can be submitted to Baker College electronically or via postal mail. Any official transcript or score report must be provided by the issuing institution either in a sealed, unopened envelope or via an approved secure electronic delivery method. If a "send-to" e-mail address is required, please use GetEnrolled@baker.edu.
When sending supporting documents via postal mail, please use the following address:
Baker College Enrollment Center P.O. Box 77000 Owosso, MI 48867
All applicants are encouraged to submit any supporting documents electronically whenever possible.
Before you apply to Baker, you must demonstrate that you are capable of competing with native speakers of English on equal terms.
