Evidence of English Proficiency

Send us an email with proof of English proficiency by submitting documentation of ONE of the following. An official score report from TOEFL, IELTS, or Duolingo is required if English is not the first or primary spoken language:

Proof of English proficiency may be waived on a case-by-case basis for those students who have attended secondary or higher education school in an English-speaking (instruction) school. The respective program director should be contacted to discuss a waiver. Students with a degree from outside the United States must provide an official foreign credit evaluation (FCE) in English, including the cumulative grade point average. Anderson University will accept course-by-course foreign credential evaluations (FCE) from any National Association of Credential Evaluation Services (NACES) member.

All costs associated with foreign transcript evaluations are the student’s responsibility.
