ENGLISH PROFICIENCY TESTS
English is the language of instruction at Andrews University. International and domestic prospective students whose language of education is not English must submit English proficiency test scores. English Proficiency tests must be taken within two years prior to admission.
|English Proficiency Test||Minimum Scores Required|
|Internet-based TOEFL (iBT)*||80|
|Duolingo English test (Certified)**||110|
* Paper-based TOEFL is only accepted when administered by our Center for Intensive English Programs.
** Duolingo is only valid when certified and received directly from Duolingo. Accepted for students applying for Spring 2021 in response to COVID-19.
MA Communication, MA English, DPT Physical Therapy and some Seminary programs require higher English proficiency test scores.
Our campus also offers the services of ESL classes. Please note that an academic acceptance for our ESL program does not guarantee future admission into graduate level degrees. To learn more about the Center for Intensive English programs please visit the CIEP webpage.
If your acceptance letter indicates that you have been granted regular acceptance without stipulations, this means you have met all the requirements to become a regular accepted student. Therefore, you do not need to submit any additional documentation for admission purposes.
If your acceptance letter indicates that you have been granted acceptance with stipulations, this means you still have requirements to complete. Under this status, you may be allowed to enroll in classes at the beginning of your program (usually only for one semester), but you may not qualify to continue in your program until all your stipulations are fully satisfied.
An academic program will make an admission decision based on your application and your admission documents. If your application is denied, you may wish to consider applying to another program. Please contact us if you have questions or wish to speak with an enrollment counselor.
All international students who attend Andrews University will need to document that they have adequate financial resources to cover at least one year of overall annual costs at Andrews University.

When you receive your I-20 document, you will be ready to schedule an appointment at the closest U.S. Embassy or Consulate office. Ideally, you’ll want to plan to have your U.S. Embassy/Consulate interview no later than one to two months before the date classes begin.
When you enter the United States for the first time as a student, by air or by border crossing, you must present your passport with student visa and your I-20. Please request all documents inspected by customs officers to be returned as they are your property and you are required to show them at each port of entry.
Don't forget to stop by International Student Services office as soon as you arrive at Andrews University as we will need to sign your I-20 and make a copy of your student visa.
