International Students

Over the past six years, students from 22 different countries have enjoyed the Summer Program. We welcome your application and look forward to learning more about you. 

The Summer Program is conducted exclusively in English; therefore, students must be proficient in the English language in order to fully enjoy their experience. Therefore, we require all international students attending a school in which English is NOT the primary language of instruction to submit one of the following standardized tests:

  • TOEFL, TOEFL Jr., or SSAT score

If you have any questions, please contact the Summer Program Office directly.

Visa Information

All enrolled international students are encouraged to obtain a Tourist Visa (B-2 visa). Applicable information is available from the United States Department of State.

Health Forms and Immunization Records

Medical requirements are mandatory for all students and must be completed prior to arrival on campus. Forms are available through an online system once the student is enrolled. All international students require documentation of a physical exam in the past year, tuberculosis testing, and completion of the series of immunizations that are required by the State of Connecticut. All documents and results should be submitted in English. We will only accept officially translated documents. 

Confirmation

Once you inquire, you will establish login credentials to the LC Admission Portal for the Summer Program. On this page, you will see an “Application Checklist”, which allows you to follow the progress of your application. This checklist will be updated within one business day of the receipt of your documents. However, you are always welcome to contact the Summer Program Office to confirm the status of your application.

Upon acceptance into the Summer Program, you will receive detailed information on travel, medical insurance, and other necessary registration information.
