We require all non-native speakers of English to supply proof of English proficiency through a valid TOEFL/IELTS score for their program of study (which has been taken in the last 2 years). However, we do make allowance, on a case by case basis, for a waiver of the TOEFL/IELTS requirement. The main basis for this is on higher education coursework completed at an accredited institution in English. A review of the official transcripts you submit will be used to evaluate the TOEFL/IELTS waiver request.

Should you wish to be considered for a TOEFL/IELTS waiver, please complete and submit the brief form below. In the space provided below, please note anything else that could support your TOEFL/IELTS waiver request in addition to coursework. Please make sure your contact information is correct in the event we need to ask any follow up questions.

Please note that generally speaking, Master of Arts in Counseling students will be required to complete the TOEFL exam for proof of English proficiency.

If you have any questions regarding the TOEFL/IELTS waiver, please do not hesitate to contact Andy Peloquin at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
