International Applicant Checklist

We're happy that you've decided to apply to Whitman. Here's a list of everything you'll need to do to complete your application. If you have questions about your material, please email international@whitman.edu.

You must submit:

  • Common Application
  • TOEFL, IELTS, or Duolingo English Proficiency exam scores. We will accept self-reported scores, to be confirmed with an official score report at the time of your enrollment. If English is your first language, are currently enrolled at a high school where the primary language of instruction is English, or have spent at least two years at a high school where the primary language of instruction is English, you do not need to submit English Proficiency testing.
  • Whitman International Student Financial Aid Application (WISFAA). This is an international financial aid application for students seeking need-based financial aid. Whitman College no longer requires the CSS Profile from international applicants.
  • $50 application fee (Application fees are waived for all applicants who apply before Dec. 1)

You must also ask your school or counselor to submit the following materials:

  • Secondary school report
  • Counselor recommendation. (If you do not have a school counselor, a second teacher evaluation may be submitted in place of the counselor recommendation.)
  • Official transcript
  • Midyear report
  • Teacher evaluation


  • Official SAT or ACT score report. Whitman is test-optional, however, international applicants are strongly encouraged to submit an ACT or SAT as a way of demonstrating academic preparedness. Please see the full testing policy for more information.

Note: All application materials must be submitted in English.
