How To Apply
The academic year at Parami University is from July to June of the following year. It is divided into fall semester (August-December) and spring semester (February-May) with winter recess in January and summer holidays in June and July.
For the academic year 2023-2024, students will begin their undergraduate studies in August 2023 (fall semester). Applicants who wish to apply for undergraduate programs at Parami to enroll in the fall semester must have completed their secondary education by the summer of 2023. Those who already have bachelor’s degrees are ineligible to apply due to the limited number of seats available. Applicants will have to submit the following documents through the Parami Apply Portal:
1. Completed application form
Applicants will have to fill out information related to personal and education background, and financial information in the application form in the Apply Portal.
2. Personal Statement
Personal statement allows the applicants to demonstrate the qualities that are not easily captured in the test scores. The mandatory personal statement is the opportunity for the applicants to communicate directly with the Admissions Committee. Applicants can submit anything that helps tell their story, that demonstrates their potential to succeed during their studies at Parami University, and their aspirations beyond the years at Parami University. It is important to share information that is not included elsewhere in the application.
3. High school transcript or its equivalent
Parami University accepts high school transcripts from various education systems and institutions. The University may contact the schools directly to understand the transcripts and the education experience of the students better.
If the applicant is unable to show a high school transcript, the applicant may submit high school equivalent certificates such as GED, TASC, HiSET, or Cambridge International AS & A certificates.
Applicants who do not have high school transcripts or equivalents and/or English proficiency test scores will have to take Parami-approved entrance tests online free of charge. Please check detailed information on the Apply portal.
4. English proficiency test scores
Applicants are required to submit proof of English proficiency since all classes are conducted in English and the academic rigor demands excellent verbal and written English skills. Applicants may submit internationally accepted test scores such as TOEFL, IELTS or Duolingo. Those who do not have these test scores may take the University proctored English proficiency test online free of charge. The University recommends the applicants to submit the following minimum scores.
5. Standardized test score or its equivalent (if any)
Applicants who have taken standardized tests such as Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) may submit such scores to support their academic performance. However, these test scores are optional.
6. Contact information of two recommenders
Finally, the University will ask each of the applicant’s recommenders to submit recommendations in support of the application. The recommendations should talk about various aspects of the applicant such as academic performance, extracurricular activities, community leadership, or good character. Recommenders may be the applicant’s teachers, academic advisors, volunteer supervisors, community leaders etc. However, the applicant’s immediate family members are ineligible as recommenders due to conflict of interest.
