Our application process is designed to help us learn as much about you as we can. Of course, we evaluate your high school coursework, grades, and standardized test scores. But we’re equally interested in your activities, personal statement, and letters of recommendations. Because we understand that you’re more than transcripts and test scores.

What you’ll need to apply:

Official high school transcript

We won’t review your application without an official transcript. If you were home-schooled or don’t have a traditional transcript, please contact an admissions counselor at admissions@aic.edu or 413.205.3201 for help.

Standardized test scores (optional)

AIC is now a test optional college. Not submitting standardized test scores will not count against your application. If, however, you are satisfied with your standardized test scores and believe they are a good representation of your academic achievement, then we are happy to consider them as part of your application.

SAT test code: 3002

ACT test code: 1772

Letter of recommendation (optional)

A letter of recommendation is optional but is a good way for us to learn more about you. You can submit more than one, but the number of letters doesn’t factor into our decision-making process. Instead, we look at what people say about you and your ability to be successful in college.

Personal statement (optional)

Personal statements are also optional, but they’re a great way to tell your story first hand and help us learn about your passions, interests, and goals. If you’re worried about your GPA or test scores, or have had a personal experience that impacted your academics, a personal statement can give us the bigger picture.

English proficiency

AIC’s English proficiency requirement can be demonstrated in one of the following ways:

  • Minimum TOEFL score of 72 (internet based test) with no subset score lower than 18.
  • Minimum Duolingo English Test (DET) score of 105.
  • Minimum IELTS score of 6.5, with no bands below a 6.0.
  • Minimum SAT English based reading and writing score of 500
  • Minimum ACT English and Reading score of 37
Activities summary

We like to know what you do outside the classroom. This is your chance to highlight special skills or talents, interesting experiences and personal accomplishments.

Personal interviews

We offer optional on-campus interviews in the fall on a first-come, first-serve basis. Unfortunately, because of the large number of applicants, we can’t interview everyone. Rest assured, having an interview does not affect our admissions decisions.

Secondary school transcripts

AIC requires official transcripts for each year of secondary (high school equivalency) and post-secondary education (courses completed at a college/university). Transcripts which are not in English, or which have been completed outside of the United States, will require a course-by-course credential evaluation. AIC accepts evaluations from all active members associated with the National Association of Credential Evaluation Services (NACES) or the Center for Educational Documentation (CED) organization.
