Certificate Program Application Requirements for International Applicants

Our certificate Programs require a high level of facility with the English language.  In order to ensure your success, we require a TOEFL or IELTS score from the following students:

  • Those whose native language is not English;
  • Those from countries where English is one of the official languages, but not necessarily the first language of the majority of the population;
  • Those from countries where English is not a native language, although available as a language of instruction at all or some levels of schooling;
  • Those whose transcripts are not in English or are from schools in non-English speaking countries

For the TOEFL, our minimum scores are:

  • 96 (IBT - no score lower than 24 in each of the 4 sections)

On the IELTS, we require a minimum score of Band 7.
