The international student application process requires additional time to complete, so we prefer to have all forms and documents in the Admissions office by March 1 for fall (September) and October 1 for spring (end of January). We will, however, continue to admit international students as long as class space is available.  All documents are mailed to students via United States Postal Service.  Students wishing to receive correspondence via express mail are welcome to establish an account with University Express Mail Services.

On-campus housing is provided on a space-available basis to students who are matriculating for an undergraduate degree at the University and who are registering for 12 semester hours or more. Graduate students (Master's Degree) are not eligible for on-campus housing.

    Salisbury University does not necessarily endorse WES.  Obtaining an external evaluation service does not guarantee acceptance or awarding of credit by Salisbury. However, it has been the experience of the Office of Admissions that the university generally honors the assessment of credit to be awarded by WES.
