Is the TOEFL exam required?


The TOEFL test (Test of English as a Foreign Language) measures the ability of non-native English speakers to use and understand the English language as it is heard, spoken, read and written in the university classroom. The Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) exam is required if English is not your native language.  If you have earned or will earn a degree from a regionally accredited U.S. university before the quarter or year for which you are applying, you can skip submitting TOEFL scores.
