English Conditional Admission

The University is pleased to offer English Conditional Admission for qualified students. Students who are unable, or do not feel prepared, to take the TOEFL, IELTS or the Pearson Test of English (PTE) can request conditional admission based on completing an English skills assessment, any required English skill building sessions (Intensive English for Internationals) and, if required, a TOEFL/IELTS/PTE exam while you are in the USA.

International students are required to demonstrate a strong grasp of the English language before admission into graduate programs. Conditional admission may be granted depending on individual academic departmental policy. If English conditional admission is offered, students will need to register for English skills assessment and take instructional sessions (if required as a result of that assessment) through the University's Intensive English for Internationals. Upon successful completion of the requisite sessions, as determined by IEI, the student's English skills will be considered up to standard and the TOEFL/IELTS/PTE requirement may be waived depending on specific academic department policy. The student can then proceed into their graduate academic program. Please note that in order to have a complete application packet, students seeking English conditional admission will need to simultaneously apply for the IEI program through the link above, to the Graduate School by clicking here, and to their academic program by visiting the department website. Please note that a student cannot be a graduate assistant (GA) until they have been fully admitted and have begun their graduate academic program. Please review your academic program department's website and graduate catalog entries to determine if English conditional admission is offered. Questions can be directed to the program's graduate coordinator. Students will pay IEI fees until they meet the language criterion. If courses are taken outside of IEI, the student will be charged additional tuition at the regular rate.
