International Applicants

  • Submit a scanned copy of your passport ID page with your application.
  • Applicants whose native language is not English must submit scores for either the TOEFL or IELTS test. CJP requires a 79-80 on the internet-based TOEFL or its equivalent, and a 6.5-7.0 on the IELTS. (Institutional code: 5181)
  • A financial certificate demonstrating the student’s ability to pay is required after admission in order for the program to issue a student visa application (I-20 form).
  • After you are admitted and have your visa, fill out the International Student arrival form if you would like assistance with transportation to campus from the airport. This service is available only in August at the start of the program.

Because the program works with many international students, the admissions committee assesses applicants’ preparedness and fit with the program through transcripts, letters of recommendation and the essay. Submission of GRE scores is neither required nor recommended.

*An arts-based option is accepted in lieu of the essay. Contact for more details.
*Reference forms must be submitted directly from the references and can be emailed to or mailed to the Center for Justice & Peacebuilding, 1200 Park Rd., Harrisonburg, VA 22802, USA.
