Required Application Documents

For Regular (First-Year) Students

For Transfer Students

  • Uploaded/submitted documents must be original or certified documents. Do not upload an unofficial copy for student or a student's report
  • If you are accepted to ICU and wish to enroll, your original official documents or certified documents which are uploaded onto the Online Application System, except for the IELTS, TOEFL, SAT and ACT test results, must be submitted to ICU by postal mail together with required documents for entrance procedures by the submission deadline. Therefore, you must keep the original documents you uploaded with the online application. If the documents you mail differ from the versions you uploaded with the online application, your acceptance to ICU will be revoked. If ICU does not receive the official mailed documents by the specified date, your admission will be revoked, even if you have submitted other entrance procedure documents and have paid your academic fees.
