International students from more than 35 countries comprise approximately 18% of COA’s student body. The majority of these students are Davis United World College (UWC) Scholars, but a growing number of international students come to us from a wide range of other backgrounds. We enthusiastically welcome admission applications from all international students.


In addition to the standard application requirements, international applicants must also submit: 

Financial aid

COA will meet 100% of determined financial need for Davis UWC Scholars. Financial aid for other international students is limited. Learn more about applying for financial aid.
