English Proficiency

International students whose first language is not English are required to take the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL). A minimally acceptable score is 575 for paper and pencil tests and 233 for computerized tests and 90 for internet based.  We also accept IELTS with a minimum score of 7.  In all cases, GPA and test scores are reviewed in the context of the whole. For example, excellent grades in quantitative courses might offset a marginal quantitative score in the GRE/GMAT, or a good TOEFL/IELTS score might offset a low verbal GRE/GMAT.

Update on Testing Requirements: TOEFL At-Home Online Testing

ETS has announced that the TOEFL test is now available for students to take online at home. The at-home solution is only available in certain countries. Visit www.ets.org/s/cv/toefl/at-home/ for information about the process for the at-home process for the TOEFL iBT test.
