Foreign Credential Evaluation

All International undergraduate and graduate applicants who have any educational experience outside the United States are required to provide an official evaluation in English including the cumulative grade point average. High school students will be required to have a document-by document evaluation. Students with university credit will be required to have a course-by-course evaluation.

*Students that have attended an IB Program, a high school with US Regional Accreditation, or an American International School will not need to submit a foreign credential evaluation.

Educational systems differ country by country.  The following foreign credential evaluation (FCE) service is well versed in providing a comparison of a country’s education system to that of the United States system. This comparison includes education levels, credits and grades.  Please choose the WES ICAP evaluation.

*The report is considered official only if mailed from the agency directly to the ERAU

The Embry-Riddle Language Institute (ERLI) offers intensive English language programs. The Office of International and Graduate Admissions may offer conditional admission to applicants who meet all requirements for admission to undergraduate or graduate programs, but who have not achieved the level of English skill necessary for admission. These conditionally accepted students must attend ERLI in at least the first semester of their degree program and continue until they have attained the required English proficiency. For more information regarding the Language Institute please visit the ERLI website. Students who have not yet applied to a degree program may also apply directly to ERLI to study English by contacting ERLI at:

Note: Successful completion of ERLI prior to acceptance to a degree program does not guarantee admission to an Embry-Riddle degree program. All other requirements must also be met.

Health Requirement

All students must complete a  Medical Report Form and provide documented evidence of required immunizations for compliance with the University. Questions on health requirements, including important immunization information, can be answered by  ERAU Health Services. This information should be provided directly to:

Payment Information

Payment for tuition, fees, housing and meals are due by the established due dates each semester. Acceptable methods of payment are credit cards and checks issued by a U.S. bank and made payable to Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University. Other payment options are available through the student accounting department.

Tuition Deposit

International students must pay a deposit of $200. This amount is applied directly to the student’s account and will be credited toward tuition.

Financial Guarantee

International Students must have sufficient funds for their expenses during the entire period of study, including living costs, travel and vacation. International Students will have the opportunity to seek part-time jobs on campus to supplement their income. An Affidavit of Financial Support is required for all international students who will require an I-20 or DS-2019. In order to be considered a legal document, the Affidavit of Financial Support must be attested, notarized or certified. A bank or scholarship letter — no more than six months old and addressed to Embry-Riddle — is required. The letter must guarantee the availability of sufficient funds to cover tuition and fees, living expenses (room and board), books, medical insurance and personal expenses for two semesters. See the Affidavit of Financial Support. Fill out the form and return it with your application.

Flight  Students

All flight students must provide Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Medical Certificate, Class I or II, at least 60 calendar days before the desired enrollment date. Students who do not have access to an FAA approved physician may take this exam after arriving in the United States. All students (international and domestic) enrolled in any flight program will be required to complete additional federal screening procedures.

Returning  Students

A student whose attendance at Embry-Riddle was interrupted is required to apply for re-admission. You are considered a returning student if you have enrolled at another institution without prior written approval, have completed more than 18 semester hours at another institution, fail to enroll in at least one Embry-Riddle course in any two calendar years or have been suspended from the University. To be re-admitted, you must file a new application for admission with the Office of International & Graduate Admissions.


Applications will remain open for one year from the date received. After one year, all applicants are required to re-apply and re-submit all required documentation and meet the admissions criteria in effect at the time of reapplication.
