International Student Requirements

International Student

At Life University, we host students from all over the world.

Because we value our international students, we have a designated email and admissions counselor to assist in their enrollment process. Please email or International Admissions Counselor, Destiny Dejournett (, 770.426.2807) for immediate assistance.

Admissions Requirements to be received by the applicable deadline for International Students

*Applicants from the following countries are exempt from the English language proficiency exam: Australia, Bahamas, Barbados, some parts of Canada, Dominica, Ghana, Guyana, Ireland, Jamaica, Liberia, New Zealand, Sierra Leone, Tobago, Trinidad, United Kingdom or Zimbabwe. Students who have received a four-year degree from the United States are also exempt from an English language proficiency exam.

We recommend that you apply one year prior to your intended start date. This gives our Enrollment Team time to work with you, evaluate your coursework to date to be sure there are no surprises, and formulate a plan for smooth entrance to LIFE.
