Graduate Admissions - English Language Proficiency Requirement

All graduate students, regardless of citizenship, whose undergraduate institution is located in a country in which English is not the official language (the daily medium of communication of the majority of residents), must demonstrate competence in English by meeting the minimum score of one of the following exams. Some programs require a higher score. Letters attesting to English as the principal medium of instruction will not be accepted. Note that scores lower than the minimum will not be accepted and waivers will not be given for lower scores. Also note that a few of our graduate programs do require a higher minimum score than what is posted by the university.
