English Facility Requirements

In addition to satisfying the published academic requirements, candidates whose first language is not English and who have not studied full-time in an English language school system (an English language school system is one which is located in a country where the first language is English) for at least four years will be required to present proof of English facility by achieving an acceptable score on a recognized test of English Facility. There are no exceptions to the English facility requirements. Acceptable tests and required scores are listed below:

If you score in the discretionary ranges shown above, and you are otherwise well qualified for admission, we will automatically consider other academic evidence of English proficiency (for example, results of English courses) and we will advise you whether our English language requirements have been satisfied.
