International Students

Brooklyn is one of the hottest neighborhoods in New York City, and LIU Pharmacy is right in the heart of it all. Ranked the third-safest in the nation and the safest in New York City by The Daily Beast—LIU’s location offers easy access to one of the largest health care job markets in the world and hundreds of affiliations with top clinical research and medical facilities.

Applications are welcome from international students who hold the equivalent of a four-year bachelor’s degree. To be considered for admission, undergraduate transcripts/marksheets for each year of study, including degree conferral (diploma/degree certificate) are required. All records must be translated into English and be original or copies of the original, certified/attested by an official of the school issuing that record or the Consulate/Ministry of Education of the issuing country. The Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) is required of all students for whom English is not the native language.

Applications from international students must be accompanied by a nonrefundable $40.00 application fee and received no later than May 1 for the Fall semester and November 1 for the Spring semester. When credentials are complete and found to be satisfactory, the applicant will be required to submit a $500 deposit and a certified statement of financial support. The deposit will be applied to tuition and is not refundable should the student decide not to attend the University. An I-20AB or IAP-66 form will be issued upon receipt of the deposit and statement of financial support. Students should not make plans to come to the United States until they have received the immigration form.

F-1 students are eligible to apply for Curricular Practical Training (CPT) and Optional Practical Training (OPT). Click here to find out more.
