How to satisfy UA's graduate minimum English proficiency requirement:

The specific conditions will be listed in your graduate conditional admission offer. In general, however, there are 2 ways to fulfill the minimum English language proficiency requirement:

  1. Complete CESL's Graduate University Track to receive CESL's Graduate Endorsement. Note: Some graduate programs do NOT accept CESL endorsement in lieu of an English proficiency test score.

  2. Achieve the minimum English proficiency exam score. At a minimum, graduate students must earn a TOEFL score of 79 (iBT) or 550 (PBT), or a minimum composite score of 7 on the IELTS, with no subject area below a 6. Note: Individual departments may require a higher score.
