English Proficiency

Vincennes University is an open enrollment college, which means we do not require a TOEFL score for International Admissions. At Vincennes University, the requirement to provide English language scores may be waived if you have completed, or are currently completing, a degree-level course that is: full-time, at least nine months long, undertaken at a recognised institution where the medium of instruction and assessment throughout the course is entirely in English.

Although English proficiency is not required for admissions, applicants can meet our English proficiency standard by attaining the necessary score on the following tests:

*Results from any other English proficiency test should be submitted and will be reviewed on a case by case basis.

Students with TOEFL scores below 71 iBT or IELTS score below 6 will be tested for English as a Additional Language  upon their arrival. If a student does not achieve a satisfactory score, he or she will be required to take at least one semester of full-time ESL courses (16 credit hours). A student must successfully complete their ESL courses before enrolling in any regular college courses. See more about English as a Second Language (ESL)
