International Students

Ready for an International Adventure?

Toccoa Falls College is home to students from more than 32 countries including: Indonesia, Senegal, Zambia, Dominican Republic, Mexico, South Korea, Japan, China, Germany and many others. We work with and welcome students from all over the world and look forward to making you feel welcome and at home during your stay at TFC. We are committed to helping prepare you for your life purpose, whether teacher, missionary, businessman, global leader or scholar.

We know selecting a college so far from home is a big, life altering decision. That’s why we work so hard to make sure your decision is in your best interest for your future. The college you choose should provide opportunities in academics, social activities, spiritual life, friendships and self-exploration that will solidify who you are and where you plan to go in life. Moreover, it should be part of God’s plan for your future.

An education at Toccoa Falls College challenges students in every aspect of life. Our faculty and staff teach you to think, to conceptualize, solve problems, and make decisions for yourself. You will develop the intellect needed to adapt to a constantly changing world. Upon graduation from TFC, you’ll have confidence knowing you are prepared for whatever life path you have chosen.

At TFC, you will also build character and learn about service and the ability to work well with others. Visitors always remark on the friendliness of our students, faculty, and staff. You will experience this firsthand when you and your family arrive at your residence hall the first day. Don’t be surprised when a group of students unload your car and brings all your things to your room. Hospitality is part of our culture here, and it’s driven by our desire to follow Jesus’s lead in loving people through serving them and sharing His love with others. TFC empowers you to develop relationships that last forever. All in an environment that was designed to help you succeed. Don’t forget the endless recreational activities that allow for creativity and too much fun to mention! It’s all part of the TFC experience, and we know you are going to LOVE it!

TFC’s International Admissions staff is here to help you every step of the way. We welcome you to the United States and TFC with open arms!
