English Proficiency Requirement
You must be proficient in English (reading, writing, and speaking) appropriate to our academic environment and to your level of study.
If you completed high school in English, you are generally considered to have met this requirement.
Completing high school in English means that you completed high school or its approved equivalent:
- In the U.S. (includes GEDs, etc.), or
- In a country where English is the language of instruction (see Countries/Principalities Using English as an Official Language and the Language of Instruction in Higher Education), or
- At a “high school” where the primary language of instruction was English
If you do not meet one of these criteria, you may establish English proficiency by means of:
- A transcript indicating “C-“ or higher in a college-level writing/composition course from either a regionally accredited U.S. college/university or an eligible college/university in a country on the list of countries of English instruction
- A degree from either a regionally accredited U.S. college/university or an eligible college/university in a country on the list of countries of English instruction
- Minimum score on an external exam (TOEFL, IELTS)
