Graduate Student Assistantship

International Students


Any student whose home language is not English must meet specific English language proficiency requirements to be considered for a graduate student assistantship.

Please note: TOEFL® scores are valid for 2 years. Because language proficiency can change considerably in a relatively short period of time, scores more than 2 years old cannot be reported or verified. Frequently Asked questions, visit http://www.ets.org/toefl/ibt/faq/
