International students come to Clayton State from all over the world, from Albania to Zimbabwe and many places in between. Our suburban location and proximity to the city of Atlanta allow our students to experience life in a quiet suburb just beyond the bright city lights of a major metropolis.

If you’re an international student ready to bring your diverse ethnic and cultural perspectives to a thriving, supportive university, then Clayton State is for you!

Official SAT or ACT

If you are applying as an incoming freshman, you must submit official SAT/ACT test scores. 

If you are applying as a transfer student, you must have 30 or more transferable hours to not require the SAT/ACT. We will determine upon receiving your official transcripts. Should you not have 30 or more transferable hours, you must submit official SAT/ACT test scores.
