Prior to enrolling at the Intensive English Program, you may submit official TOEFL/IELTS results.  If you wish to have these results reviewed for consideration, official test scores must be received in the Office of Undergraduate Admission before January 1, 2016. Test results received after this date will not be accepted and no changes will be made to your conditional admission. The university reserves the right to retest any student’s English language proficiency upon arrival, including those who have a passing score.
