  • All applicants, undergraduate and graduate, whose native language is not English must submit TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language), IELTS or iTEP scores to demonstrate basic English proficiency. Applicants native to Australia, Canada, Ireland, New Zealand and the United Kingdom will be presumed to be proficient.

    It is the applicant's responsibility to obtain necessary information and application forms and to schedule and take the test by a date that will assure delivery of results to the university by required deadlines. Only TOEFL scores of 197 (computer-based), 500 (paper-based) or 60 (Internet-based) will be considered for admission to any program in the university. TOEFL scores are only valid for two years after the test date. An IELTS score of 6.5 or an iTEP score of 4.0 is required for undergraduate students and 5.0 is required for graduate students.

The University may require an advance deposit of funds to cover one year's estimated expense for all non-immigrant international graduate students before the issuance of the I-20 Form.

Please note that applications will be received on a competitive basis and Sullivan University does not guarantee admission.
