All students from developing nations are required to make a deposit of funds to the college, after acceptance, to the equivalent of one year’s fees prior to their departure for Israel.

Language

Foreign students whose mother tongue is not English must show English proficiency. ICB requires a minimum TOEFL score of 550 or an equivalent.

Visa Application

ICB requires that upon acceptance to the college students apply for a student visa before leaving their home country. ICB will furnish the student with a formal acceptance letter immediately upon the decision to accept an applicant. Be advised that the visa application process can take up to two months; we therefore suggest that the student start the process immediately upon receiving the acceptance letter.

It should be noted that the college cannot guarantee the granting of a student visa due to changing policies of the Israeli Ministry of Interior. The vast majority of students at ICB have had no difficulty receiving a student visa, but it would be advisable to keep this issue in prayer.

We ask those students who are unable to apply for a student visa in their home country (due to time constraints or other reasons) to contact the Registrar’s Office for additional information.
