The application fee is $75. After your application is submitted, you will be emailed with instructions on how to pay the fee.

If a sponsor will be providing you with money for tuition, fees, and living expenses, they must complete the Affidavit of Support. You may have multiple sponsors but each sponsor will need to complete a separate form. You will also need to provide the sponsor’s bank statements for at least the last three months. The available amount shown on the statements must be equal to at least 23,875 USD for students seeking a bachelor’s degree. ESL students must show at least 11,470 USD.

If you are interested in receiving the international Freshmen Merit Scholarship. You must submit a complete transcript or all scores from a secondary school exit examination. However, If you are not interested in receiving the scholarship, you may submit a diploma. We evaluate all secondary school records within the International Student Services office, so you will not need to use a credential evaluation company.

Students transferring from a U.S. institution must submit their official transcripts to Dixie State University. Please send the transcript directly to the Registrar’s Office at records@dixie.edu. If an official transcript cannot be sent electronically, please have it mailed to:

Registrar’s Office
Dixie State University
225 S. University Ave.
Saint George, UT 84770

Transferring from a foreign institution? You will need to send your transcript to a credential evaluation service. After you pay a small fee, they will verify that your course work is equivalent to course work taken at a regionally accredited college or university in the U.S. You will also need to provide a certified English translation of the course descriptions for courses to be evaluated properly. Otherwise, all credits will be transferred as elective credit. We recommend using the World Education Service. If a different company is used, Dixie State University will have to further examine the foreign credits which will delay the admission process.

Note: Dixie State University does not require that students submit foreign college/university transcripts, nor do we guarantee that the credits will transfer.

Provide a color copy of your passport.
