Oral Language Proficiency in English for Applicants whose Native Language is other than English

All applicants to teacher education programs whose native language is other than English must demonstrate oral language proficiency in English by taking the Internet- based Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL- iBT) Speaking Component with a minimum score of 28. At the discretion of the program director:

  1. The iBT test will be required of applicants to foreign language (French, German, Italian, Spanish) education programs.
  2. Students may be recommended for remediation courses in English as a Second Language if oral language proficiency is not appropriate to program goals. Satisfactory completion of these courses will be required for continuation in the teacher education
