Admissions Requirements

Sampoerna University seeks to admit students who are interested in an international-standard higher education and have the basic skills to succeed in an American-style university environment. As a university that teaches all its programs in English, successful applicants should have at least a working knowledge of Academic English.

1. Academic Requirements:

  • Satisfactory completion of final year secondary school, or equivalent from a recognized high school. Applicants need to submit their previous year or latest high school transcripts to be reviewed by Admissions. Proof of High School completion must be provided as part of enrollment eligibility.
  • On a case-by-case basis, a certified high school completion equivalency may be required.
  • If you are a transferring student from another college or university, additional requirements may apply. Please contact the admissions office for more information.

2. Placement Test Requirements:

Our Admissions Policies identify the minimum necessary qualifications for acceptance. A placement test is not only required for admission but is also designed to measure applicants’ College Readiness in English and Mathematics for course placement. A student is admissible if they can meet Sampoerna University’s admission standards.

Applicants can bypass the Placement Tests and may be offered Direct Acceptance by submitting standardized assessment test scores from TOEFL or IELTS (for Basic Skills Test equivalency) and SAT or ACT (for Advanced Skill Test equivalency).
