Personal Guidance at Every Step

The international student services office and your admissions counselor will help you navigate the application and admission process:

Step 1
Complete your free online application HERE or on the Common App website.

Step 2                                                              Submit your official high school transcript (with official transcript evaluation for non US accredited schools).

Step 3                                                              Submit your official TOEFL, IELTS, or Duolingo Score to show English language proficiency. Visit the International Requirements page for more details on the admission requirements and exceptions.

• ACT & SAT scores for freshmen are NOT required, but can be sent either along with or after your PBA application has been submitted, to be considered for bonus scholarships.


Your Student Visa

If you are not a U.S. citizen or Green Card holder, you will need to apply for an F-1 student visa to study at PBA. Once you decide to enroll at PBA and after you submit a $300 enrollment deposit, our International Student Services Office will assist you with obtaining an I-20 form, the first step in the visa process. You can contact for assistance, and plan on completing your application for admission and visa application as early as possible to allow for sufficient processing time.
