While a minimum score of 530 or more on the paper-based exam or a score of 71 on the internet version, (TOEFL iBT) on the graduate degree program will be used to determine the extent of English proficiency and thereby, student placement.

If you want to certify your English proficiency prior to submitting an application, you will need to take the TOEFL.
