English Language Requirement

English proficiency, both written and verbal, is necessary for success in D'Amore-McKim classrooms. If you are not a native English speaker, we require a standardized test of English language proficiency. Exceptions are granted to those who completed a bachelor’s or master’s degree at an accredited institution where English is the language of instruction, as well as to those who have worked full-time in the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, or other native English-speaking environment.

Demonstrating Proficiency through Test Scores

We accept the following English language proficiency test scores. Enter your scores and upload a scanned copy of your results as a document in your online application. The TOEFL iBT, IELTS, and PTE Academic results are each valid for two years.

Demonstrating Proficiency through an Admissions Interview

If you have not completed an English language proficiency test, feel that your scores are not an accurate representation of your abilities, or simply prefer an interview, you may request an intake interview in lieu of providing test scores. Interviews are typically 30 minutes long, may be completed remotely or in-person, and are arranged at the time of application review.

Additional International Application Requirements

In addition to the standard application requirements, there are also additional materials we request from international applicants.

If you are neither a citizen nor a permanent resident of the United States, you must submit a scanned copy of your passport into the Supplemental Section of your online application.

Any scanned academic transcripts that you submit through our application must include an English translation. Include all postsecondary educational institutions you have attended—as well as any technical or professional schools—and your diploma or degree earned. Do not include transcripts from your secondary school or high school.
