International Students

International students applying to a graduate program must meet all academics requirements as well as any additional requirements as outlined by the individual program. If transferring credit from a college or university outside the US, you must submit a course-by-course evaluation from World Education Services (WES, www.wes.org). Queens accepts the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) or the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) in place of the SAT. A minimum score of 550 (written test), 213 (electronic test), or 79 (internet based test) on the TOEFL is required for admission. A minimum composite score of 6.5 on the IELTS is required for admission. Also, in lieu of the TOEFL, Queens will accept successful completion (level 12) of the ELS Language Centers English language program.
