However, students who are in 10th standard need not wait for the board examination results – they can forward them when they arrive.

Step 3: Schedule visit to KIS

Students who are residents of SAARC countries should visit KIS for testing and interview. During the visit the prospective student and his / her family will meet with the Admissions Officer, the Dean of Residential Life and be interviewed by a faculty member. He / she will also be required to sit a general aptitude test in English and Math and write an essay on a topic of interest.

Step 4: Track KIS application forms

The KIS Admissions office will contact you each time they receive paperwork from you to ensure that all forms required have been received. The Admissions office requires clear communication directly with the parents / guardians of all prospective students during the entire admissions process. Candidates are welcome to contact the Admissions office regarding concerns or questions.

Step 5: KIS registration

After completion of all paperwork and following the visit, the KIS Admissions Committee will meet to determine if the prospective student has met the criteria to be accepted to Kodaikanal International School. If an appropriate match has been made, KIS Admissions Coordinator will send a letter of acceptance to the prospective student and his / her parents.

Step 6: Registration at Kodaikanal International School

The parent / guardians of the student are requested to send a letter of acceptance to the offer of admission. A security deposit to assure the student’s registration at Kodaikanal International School is required. Once the security deposit is paid, KIS will send further material regarding the registration of the student.
