What are the requirements for English proficiency?

All international applicants, non-US Citizens, and non-US Permanent Resident applicants for whom English is not the native language must submit official scores for the Test Of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL). The International English Language Testing System (IELTS) will not be accepted in place of the TOEFL.

  • You may use 2888 or 2926 as the Institution Code for the TOEFL exam.  The Department Code is 1699.  The CS Major Code is 78.
  • We must receive your official TOEFL score directly from ETS by the application deadline.
  • Test must have been taken within 2 years of application submission.
  • A minimum score of 100 is recommended but it is not required.

This requirement can be waived if the candidate has completed a bachelor’s degree or master’s degree where the medium of instruction at the institution is English, by the time of matriculation. Applicants are required to submit documentation of the medium of instruction along with the waiver. Applicants will have the opportunity to apply for a waiver upon submission of their application.
