Your academic success at The Master’s College depends a great deal upon your fluency in the English language. In order to determine your level of proficiency, international applicants must sit for the TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) or the IELTS (International English Language Testing System).
The TOEFL is an official exam supervised by the Educational Testing Service (ETS). The service sends an official report noting your score on the exam to an institution of your choice. You may obtain information about this test at www.toefl.org. When you apply for the test you may have your results sent to The Master’s College by referencing our school code, which is 4411.
To be considered for admission to The Master’s College, applicants must earn a score of at least 80 on the internet-based (iBT) TOEFL or a 550 on paper-based version.
IELTS is jointly managed by the British Council, IDT:IELTS Australia, and the University of Cambridge ESOL Examinations. Information about sitting for the IELTS can be found on their web site at www.ielts.org. The Master’s College requires a band score of 6.5 or higher.
Registration for these exams often must be secured several months in advance. Please plan accordingly.
Note to Native English Speakers:
If you are a native English speaker, you should take either the SAT or ACT, in lieu of the TOEFL or IELTS. Our school code for the SAT is 4411, and for the ACT it is 0303.
Note to Transfer Students:
If you have completed 24 or more semester units of transferable coursework at an accredited American university or college (but not just in an ESL program), the requirements for submitting exam scores (TOEFL, IELTS, SAT, or ACT) are waived.
