However international applications may be eligible for an exclusive Cleary University Business Scholarship (C.U.B.S) designed to assist incoming undergraduate students in emerging international markets.
C.U.B.S are limited in each market and extremely competitive. Students must meet specific academic criteria and submit a formal application for consideration. In addition, students who are awarded a C.U.B.S are also required to perform academic work service to Cleary University while they are enrolled (ex. 5-10 hours per week).
Cleary requires applicants to take the TOEFL test.
The MELAB test is also accepted.
A satisfactory TOEFL score of 550 (paper based); 213 (computer based); 70 (Internet based); or MELAB score of 75 or above.
In addition, Cleary University accepts the International English Language Testing Services examination (IELTS). Undergraduate students are required to have a minimum score of 5.5. Incoming graduate students are required to achieve a score of 6.5 or above.
