International Students

International students for whom English is a second language need a TOEFL score of 550 (213 for computer-based, 80 for Internet-based) to be considered for admission to the graduate program. The subsections of the TOEFL (Reading, Listening, Verbal and Writing) are evaluated by the English-as-a-Second-Language (ESL) coordinator and if a weakness in proficiency in any of the subsections, the student will be placed upon arrival in an appropriate English course – English Language Communication (ELC)- offered by the College of Arts and Letters at Stevens. Students receive a grade for the class based on attendance, participation,completed assignments, and a final presentation and paper, which serve as a post-test. Students are required to take the ELC course in their final semester.

International students are also required to submit GMAT (or GRE) test scores.
