International Admission Guidelines

All applicants should follow our Application Checklist. St. Margaret's has its own online application, and we also accept the SSAT Standard Application and the TABS Common Application.

The non-refundable application fee for international applicants is $100. The International Student Fee is $2,000.
International applicants also need to submit a copy of your passport. If English is your second language, please submit iTEP, TOEFL (TOEFL Code: B525), TOEFL Jr., or Duolingo English Test scores. We do not use minimum scores to eliminate students from the application pool.
The remaining requirements for all applicants can be found on our Application Checklist.

This school is authorized under Federal law to enroll nonimmigrant alien students.
