English Language Requirements

When an applicant's first language is other than English, consideration for admission includes establishing an acceptable level of language proficiency by completing a language proficiency test. (Graduate Studies does not require language tests from applicants who have completed two years or more at an accredited university in a country (or institution) where English is the official language of instruction.)
