International students must self-certify as to successful completion of the equivalent of Grade 12 in a U.S. secondary school and provide evidence of successful completion of a program considered to be equivalent to an accredited high school diploma or GED certificate.

If permitted, the student will be allowed to take a maximum of four courses on a non-degree seeking student basis. If a student has a 3.0 GPA or higher after taking four courses, the student may be accepted as a degree-seeking student. If the student’s GPA is lower than 3.0, the student’s enrollment at Waldorf will be terminated.
