English Language Proficiency

The ability to speak, read, and understand English fluently is an important factor in the admission decision.

All applicants who do not fall into any of the following categories must include in their application a test score establishing English-language proficiency:

  • Applicants whose primary language is English and who have graduated from a high school that uses English as the primary language of instruction.
  • Applicants who have earned at least three semester credits of freshman English composition with a grade of at least C+ at colleges or universities accredited by U.S. Department of Education-recognized accrediting bodies.
  • Applicants who have studied for at least three years in a high school or college that uses English as the primary language of instruction.

English proficiency is preferably demonstrated through an official score on the TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language). It may also be proven through performance on other tests and measures such as IELTS (The International English Language Testing Service), the SAT (Evidence-based Reading and Writing section), the ACT exam, or a combination of Lexile (reading) and Accuplacer (writing). The following table lists the minimum scores required.

Test Type Minimum Score
SAT (EBRW) 500
ACT 20
Lexile & Accuplacer (W) 1100 & 4
