English Language Proficiency Requirements

Applicants to the Biomedical Laboratory Diagnostics program must demonstrate the ability to read, write, speak, and understand the English language. Applicants for whom English is not their native language (often international applicants and/or foreign graduates) may demonstrate proficiency by providing documentation of:

  • Internet-based Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL iBT) exam total score of 83 with a 26 or higher on the speaking portion; or
  • International English Language Testing System (IELTS) band exam score of 6.5

TOEFL or IELTS scores must be less than 3 years old. Arrangements and costs incurred for the TOEFL or IELTS are the responsibility of the applicant. Only official score reports will be accepted.

Documentation of scores must be submitted with the application, before the application deadline, to be considered for admission to either the MLS or HTL track.
