International Student Admissions

The BGSU Office of Admissions is responsible for coordinating admission for international students. Admission materials should be sent to the Office of Admissions for those applying to an undergraduate program or the Graduate College for those applying to a graduate programe (addresses below). Learn more about the admission process through the following links.

We encourage international students who are in the United States and would like to meet with a representative to consider coming in during our International Student Office Hours on Tuesdays and Thursdays. During this time someone will be available to go over the application, requirements for admission and any other questions students may have about the process.
