Applicants from China, South Korea, and Vietnam

International students coming from China, South Korea, and Vietnam are encouraged to work through The Cambridge Institute of International Education. The Academy of the Holy Cross partners with Cambridge to ensure the best possible educational experience for our students and to help guide them through the admissions process and placement. Cambridge's program prepares students for life abroad prior to arriving at Holy Cross and continues to provide international students with on-going support through the school year.

To submit an application or if you have any questions, please contact our consultants at The Cambridge Institute by following this link and completing the inquiry form.  Contact information for Cambridge offices in the United States and around the world is also available here. 


The Application Process:  

Applying to Holy Cross through The Cambridge Institute is a two-step process.  

Step 1: Contact the Cambridge Institute through this link and complete the application packet.  

Step 2: Schedule a Skype interview with the Admissions team at Holy Cross.

Upon acceptance to The Academy of the Holy Cross, you will receive an Enrollment Contract that you will need to complete and return to Cambridge along with the registration fee. Once this has been received, the I-20 process can begin so that you may obtain your F-1 student visa.
