Each university in the Unites States of America sets its own admission standards so there isn't the same criteria for all the students and the university can decide which applicants meet those standards. The fee for each application is between $35 to $100.
After the selections of the universities you want to attend, the best of all would be to contact each university for an application form and more admission information for the international students. Moreover, for a graduate or postgraduate program it's necessary to verify the admission requirements. Some programs require that you send your application directly to their department.
Admissions decisions are based on students's academic record and different test scores, such as TOEFL, the SAT or ACT (for undergraduate programs) and GRE or GMAT (for graduate programs). Admission decision is based on your academic results and motivation.

As a Walden student, there are a number of resources available to you to help fund your education. Our enrollment advisors, along with our knowledgeable financial aid advisors, are committed to helping you identify your options and answer any questions you may have about the financial aid process. Currently two-thirds of Walden students receive some form of financial aid. Many defray up to 100% of their tuition and fees through Federal Direct Loans.*
The following are the loans and grant programs administered by Walden Universitys Office of Financial Aid. New and current students must meet eligibility requirements to receive and maintain federal student aid.
The Office of Financial Aid processes awards on a rolling basis. You are strongly encouraged to begin the application process at least four weeks prior to the start date of your program or renewal date of your existing loan. Your completed financial aid application, which includes all documents required for awarding and disbursing funds, is required 30 days prior to the end of the term in order for funds to be processed for that term. You must also maintain all federal aid eligibility requirements for the entire term.
Applications will be accepted in the last 30 days of the term, but the Office of Financial Aid cannot be held responsible if funds are not available for disbursement for the term. Delays can occur that are outside of the control of the Office of Financial Aid.
Walden expects its financial aid advisors to always maintain exemplary standards of professional conduct in all aspects of carrying out their responsibilities. Read the Walden University Financial Aid Code of Conduct.
