For applicants, for whom English is a second language, a minimum score of 100 is required on the TOEFL exam in order to be considered for admission. While all classroom instruction is conducted in English, the administration, faculty and staff attempt to be sensitive to the needs of our international students.

Foreign students are urged to contact the Office of International Student Advancement to obtain the appropriate information.
