English Language Proficiency
Non-native English speakers seeking admission to Niagara University must verify their proficiency in English by taking the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL). A TOEFL score of at least 550 (paper exam) is required for admission. The last PBT will be phased out starting mid-2012. Niagara waives lower scores for students who are interested in participating in our ESL Program.
Students may take the TOEFL PBT until it is discontinued in their area and submit the scores for two years after the test date. Niagara University will also accept TOEFL Internet-based or the International English Language Testing System (IELTS).
For Graduate Students
Please note that Niagara waives the TOEFL examination requirement for students scoring a 600 or higher on the GMAT/GRE.
|Admission Requirement||TOEFL Paper Based||TOEFL Internet Based||IELTS||CET 6|
If your TOEFL scores do not meet the requirements, simply apply to the ESL program here at Niagara and the TOEFL score requirements will be bypassed. Use this link to go straight to the ESL Admissions page.
