International Students Applying to U.S. Law Schools - Touro Law Center

International Student

Touro Law Center welcomes qualified applicants from abroad to apply to our programs. Students who are not citizens or permanent residents of the United States typically enter the U.S. in non-immigrant F-1 student status and are considered as International Students.
International applicants must meet the same admissions requirements, receive the same merit scholarship consideration and pay the same tuition as U.S. applicants.
An applicant with a degree from a non-U.S. institution must demonstrate that it is equivalent to a bachelor’s degree awarded by a regionally accredited institution in the U.S. Official transcripts must be submitted directly to the Credential Assembly Service (CAS) for evaluation and authentication from the institution attended. Transcripts issued to students or sent by students will not be processed.
Form I-20 (Certificate of Eligibility for Non-Immigrant (F-1) Student Status) is required for the application of the student (F-1) visa at a U.S. embassy or Consulate abroad.This form will be issued by the Designated School Official (DSO) at Touro Law after the student has met the following requirements:
  • Accepted to the program
  • Paid the required tuition deposit
  • Satisfied the affidavit of support requirements

International students are required to report to the Law Center’s International Students Office located in the Office of Admissions (Room 301) upon arrival on campus.

One to World

One To World programs engage the over 100,000 international students studying in the New York-area (including over 800 Fulbright grantees) through programs that create understanding and build positive relationships between area residents and these unofficial ambassadors from all over the world. Our programs provide a unique opportunity for U.S. residents and international students to engage on an intimate level; having dinner inside local homes, sharing culture and experiences in the classroom, and volunteering their time together through community service projects.
