A TOEFL or IELTS score is required if the international student has an undergraduate or master's degree from a non-English speaking university*. The required scores are:
- TOEFL - 100 or higher
- IELTS - 7.5 or higher
If an international student has an undergraduate or master's degree from an English speaking university, a TOEFL or IELTS score is not required.
ALL non-US equivalent transcripts must arrive with a certified English evaluation and translation, and evidence of degree posted. The student must have a minimum GPA of 3.5 on a 4.0 scale, or equivalent to that according to the grading system used by the country that a student is applying from*.
Please note that CUI does not have a translation or evaluation service, and students are responsible to get an official translation and evaluation done by a NACES-approved evaluation agency verifying the equivalent of a regionally accredited U.S. bachelor's degree or higher – CUI prefers international transcripts to be evaluated through IERF.
