2016-2017 Catalog

International Students

Lafayette actively seeks international students, whose special experiences contribute significantly to the rich diversity of the campus community. Currently, approximately nine percent of the student body is made up of international students who represent 55 countries.

All applicants are required to submit official results of the SAT or the ACT with writing. Additionally, Lafayette recommends but does not require the results of two SAT Subject Tests. Prospective math and science majors are encouraged to take Subject Tests in mathematics and science.

Students whose first language is not English must submit official results of the TOEFL test unless the language of instruction during their four years of high school has been English. Generally, most competitive international candidates achieve a TOEFL (iBT) score of 95 or higher for admission.
