International Students

Students with undergraduate degrees from universities outside the U.S. should also submit a report from a credential evaluation service that converts grades into a grade point average (GPA) with a course by course break down of their degree. The university will accept evaluations done by any credentialing agency listed on the National Association of Credential Evaluation Services web site.

TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) scores are required of all international students whose first language is not English, except those applicants who have graduated from an accredited university where English is the language of instruction such as an American, Canadian, or British university. To have the TOEFL requirement waived, the degree must be awarded. The TOEFL waiver will be coded into the application by the Graduate School upon receipt and review of the transcript showing degree conferral and medium of instruction was English. The university-wide minimum requirement is 90 for Internet and 577 for paper; However, some departments require a higher score. TOEFL scores are not required of US permanent residents and US naturalized citizens. It is Graduate School policy to administer an English placement test (EPT) upon enrollment to international graduate students with TOEFL scores below certain minimums; see the Graduate Catalog for details.

For additional information on the TOEFL exam, please visit http://www.ets.org/toefl/.

IELTS (International English Language Testing System) is also accepted in lieu of the TOEFL. A 6.5 minimum is required to apply.

Official test scores should be sent to the Virginia Tech Graduate School, institution code 5859. Do not enter a department code.
