Applicants for whom English is a second language must submit official scores for the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL). The required minimum score is 83 (IBT). We may require TOEFL testing of any applicant when language proficiency is an issue, including applicants from countries where English is the official language, but not the primary language spoken. To take the TOEFL, call 800-468-6335 or visit their website at www.toefl.org. International students must submit professionally prepared English language transcripts. The following agencies are among those who offer transcript translation services:
