International Students

International Applicants

internationalInternational applicants are reminded that application procedures may take time, and those needing a visa to enter Lebanon must allow for ample time for formalities. It is advisable to allow time for the application form, the supportive documents, recommendations, and the application fee to reach the university three months before the beginning of the semester. International applicants must pay an advance deposit and are required to present a satisfactory budget for financing their studies and living costs at the university. Under no circumstances should international applicants come to the university before receiving an official letter of acceptance from the university. Upon arrival in Lebanon, international applicants must come directly to Middle East University.

International applicants may be required to supply certain medical records as requested by the university and should have passports that are valid for a period not less than one year from the date of joining the university. It is their responsibility to secure an entry visa to Lebanon from the Lebanese consulate in their country and to maintain their student visa status at all times. The university will assist registered international students in acquiring residence permits from the local authorities. International undergraduate students are expected to carry a full course of study—a minimum of 12 credits per semester and six credits in the summer session, in order to maintain their international student status.

International applicants to the Freshman Class are required to sit for and pass both the SAT Reasoning Test and the SAT Subject Tests prior to registration for the Freshman Class in order to acquire equivalency of their degree programs from the Lebanese Ministry of Higher Education.
