In addition to the checklist requirements, foreign nationals must do one of the following:
Submit your TOEFL scores (Test of English as a Foreign Language) with your application (Note: The TOEFL is a very costly test).
Request that your admissions essay be considered as evidence of competency in the English language.
You will be evaluated on your English competency by the Admission’s Committee in order to determine your capacity for success in graduate studies. It is often the case that foreign nationals for whom English is a second language are recommended to pursue coursework on a non-degree seeking basis.
