Admission

TOEFL Requirements

Applicants whose native language is not English must provide proof of English proficiency and have official results sent directly to Monmouth University (code 2416). Official test scores must be sent to us directly from the testing center. Photocopies cannot be used.

Requirements are:

  • TOEFL (Test Of English As A Foreign Language)
    • A minimum of 550 on the paper-based TOEFL; 213 on the computer-based test; and 79 on the Internet-based test. For test locations please visit www.toefl.org.
  • IELTS (International English Language Testing System, minimum score required is 6)
  • CAE (Certificate of Advanced English)
    • Minimum score is B2.
  • MELAB (Michigan English Language Assessment Battery, minimum score required is 77)
    • This test is under the auspices of the University of Michigan. It is often accepted by US and Canadian institutions as an alternative to the TOEFL and is given in some countries that do not offer TOEFL.
    • Score is based on a 100 point scale.

Monmouth University will also accept international students who meet the University’s regular standards for admission and who have successfully completed the ELS Language Services program at the master’s level of English proficiency, which is completion of Level 112, in lieu of the TOEFL or other English proficiency exam. Conditional acceptance may be issued by Monmouth University to those students who elect to prove English proficiency by enrolling in and completing ELS Level 112.
