Official TOEFL Score (English Proficiency)
All applicants from countries where English is the second language must take the TOEFL examination.
This requirement includes all persons of International status, Permanent Residents of the U.S. (green card holders), and U.S. Naturalized citizens.
If the examination has been taken within the last two years, an official report should be sent to the Office of Admissions and Records. TOEFL scores that are older than two years cannot be verified and are NOT ACCEPTABLE.
