English Proficiency

International applicants will be asked to demonstrate their English proficiency. This is typically done through available testing or academic history.

Please review the options and choose ONE of the four to satisfy your proficiency requirement.

1. Testing Option
Only original score reports sent directly by the testing service will be considered. There is not an institution code for the IELTS exam, so students must request that the score be mailed directly. Only ONE of the following tests will be needed.

80 6282
TOEFL: Paper Based 550 6282
IELTS 6.5 None

2. College Credit Option
Successful completion of two (2) semesters of non-remedial freshman English from a regionally-accredited U.S. institution of higher education.  Students must receive a letter grade of ‘C’ or better.

Transfer students who have only completed one semester of English will be asked to show test scores as in Option 1.
