6. Official TOEFL Score Report
Applicants whose native language is not English must take the TOEFL and have the official scores reported to Cornell (Institutional Code: 8839) by the Educational Testing Service (ETS). The TOEFL is the only English proficiency test accepted by this program and scores from other testing organizations will not be considered. Students who are currently studying full time, for at least two years, at a college or university where English is the language of instruction, located in a country where English is the native language, may be exempted from submitting TOEFL scores. We ask those individuals who feel they should qualify for a waiver to send a letter requesting such and detailing their reasoning along with their application materials well in advance of the application deadline for prior approval.
- The minimum acceptable TOEFL score for admission to this program is: at least 550 on the paper-based test; at least 213 on the computer-based test; or minimum scores of Writing 20, Reading 20, Listening 15, and Speaking 22 on the internet-based test.
*Please note: Because language proficiency can change considerably in a short period of time, TOEFL scores are only valid for two years from the test date. If you took the TOEFL more than two years prior to the date of your application to this program you must take the test again in order to have your scores reported.
All application documents must arrive by the close of business on Monday, October 15, 2012. Applicants are encouraged to apply well in advance of the deadline. Please be aware that Fed Ex and UPS are the only express services that can guarantee door-to-door delivery to our office. USPS mail posted a week before the deadline is unlikely to arrive at our office in time. Applicants are encouraged to send application materials electronically to email@example.com when possible.
Application materials sent via mail should be directed to:
