Students whose first language is not English must provide evidence of English-language proficiency before they are accepted into any program in the Department of English.  To qualify for admission, students must obtain at least a minimum composite score on one of the following exams, with component score(s) at or above those indicated:

  1. Paper-based TOEFL (ITP) composite score of 600 with no component score lower than 55.  An additional written essay exam is required with a minimum score of 80, and an additional speaking evaluation with a score of not less than 3. 
  2. Internet-based TOEFL (iBT) composite score of 100, with Reading and Listening component scores of at least 15, Writing component score of at least 17, and Speaking component score of at least 18.
  3. MELAB composite score of 84 with no component score lower than 80.
  4. IELTS composite score of 7, with Reading, Listening, and Speaking component scores of at least 6, and a Writing component score of at least 5.

The exam must be taken within two years prior to enrollment.  Students who score below these levels may complete lanugage requirements by enrolling in Intensive English Program courses (ENSL) on campus.  Students with a score on the TOEFL ITP of 575-599 (or the equivalent on any of the four other exams) may be eligible for the Language Bridge Program which allows students to take a limited number of degree program courses while completing language proficiency requirements in Intensive English Program courses. Students in the Language Bridge Program must demonstrate language proficiency within two semesters in order to continue in the degree program.  Exceptions to these requirements may be granted by the Department of Communications on an individual basis.
