Info for International Students

Lyon College is an international community that celebrates the diversity and globalism of its students and faculty. Every year, the College welcomes students from around the world who seek to learn about cultures outside of their own and experience the United States. These students come to Lyon to meet new friends, share their respective cultures, and experience the relevance, dimension, and challenge of a liberal arts education.

You can apply for admission to Lyon College through the Lyon Application or the Common App.


Language Proficiency

In order to determine English proficiency, Lyon requires all international students provide official TOEFL, IELTS, Duolingo, or iTEP scores with their application. Because Lyon provides college-level courses and opportunities for you to experience the academic and social aspects of the American college life, English proficiency is crucial for a positive and rewarding experience abroad.

Because these programs provide academic challenges typical of college-level study and opportunities to experience the academic and social aspects of American college life, your proficiency in English is crucial to having a positive experience.

For CONAHEC, Akita, ISEP, and Irish-American Scholar (tuition exchange) students, Lyon will accept certification of these scores by your home university or your exchange program in lieu of official scores.
