New IELTS minimum score

Attention international applicants:

For those of you that plan to take the IELTS exam in place of the TOEFL, please note the very recent change to our score requirement.  We have recently lowered the minimum IELTS requirement from a score of 8 to a score of 7.  Thanks to the recommendation of Ha, one of our student ambassadors, and the subsequent analysis and benchmarking that she performed,we concluded that a score of 7 is more appropriately aligned with our minimum IBT TOEFL score of 100.  Hopefully this will be encouraging news for any of our international applicants who may have been concerned about the “unattainable” score we had set previously.

Happy testing!
