Students who wish to avail themselves of the training who are not high school graduates may be admitted as special students.

Therefore, the college may exercise the right to accept or reject students in this category based upon this policy limitation.

INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS

Applying From Abroad
We welcome applications from all over the world. Our admissions and financial aid processes are the same for all applicants - regardless of nationality or citizenship.

How do international students apply?
The application requirements are the same for all applicants whether a student attends high school inside or outside the U.S. All first-year candidates must standard Ethnos Enrollment Application.  

Test of English as a Foreign Language
A strong knowledge of English is essential for successful study at Ethnos, including the ability to understand and express thoughts quickly and clearly. First-year and transfer applicants are not required to take an English proficiency exam, but you may submit scores if you wish to do so.

Financial Aid
Our financial aid policies are the same for all applicants, regardless of nationality or citizenship. All aid is based on financial need, and admissions decisions are made without regard to whether an applicant has applied for financial assistance.

Translated Materials
If you choose to provide translated versions of your academic credentials or letters of recommendation, please note that you should not translate the documents yourself.  You do not need, however, to hire a professional translator.  We are happy to receive letters translated by an English teacher, for example.  All translations should include the name of the translator and his/her relationship to you.  A copy of the original (untranslated) document should always accompany the translated version.

Consent regarding personal data
During the application process you, and others, such as recommenders, may provide Ethnos College with certain kinds of personal data about you that some laws regard as sensitive and deserving of special protection (“Sensitive Personal Data”).  For example, in Europe, Sensitive Personal Data can include personal data revealing racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, or trade union membership; genetic or biometric data; data concerning health; data concerning a natural person’s sex life or sexual orientation; and personal data relating to criminal convictions and offences. You can find further information about how Ethnos College uses personal data of individuals the admissions process documentation.

By submitting an application, you consent to Ethnos’ processing Sensitive Personal Data about you in order to evaluate your application for admission and your eligibility for financial aid, if applicable.  Sensitive Personal Data about you also may be processed for other purposes permitted by applicable law.

ENROLLMENT POLICY

The enrollment agreement is the contract signed between the student and the institution. The agreement specifies the conditions under which the school will provide instruction to the student. It also specifies all costs a student must pay to enroll in a specific school program. A copy of the completed enrollment agreement must be given to the student upon execution of the enrollment agreement.

The student and an authorized agent of the school must date and sign the agreement prior to the time instruction begins. This enrollment agreement meets all the requirements set forth in law and regulations. In using this form, a school must modify the information printed on each form, tailoring it to include its own school and program information. When languages other than English are used in the recruitment presentation, the modified sample enrollment agreement shall be translated into the language of the recruitment presentation.

In submitting such enrollment agreements for approval, the school must include a literal English translation of the foreign language enrollment agreement as well as a notarized attestation from the translator affirming the accuracy of the translation. If you have specific questions, contact the Education Team liaison to whom you are assigned when you file your school application and fee.
