All non-native speakers of English must submit proof of English proficiency with their applications. Generally speaking, students cannot be exempted from the minimum English scores necessary for admission; however, the requirement may be waived for applicants who:
Are citizens or permanent residents (green card holders) of the United States
Are in the US on a work visa, such as an H-1B or L-1 visa
Completed at least 30 credit hours at a college or university in the US or in another native English-speaking country. ESL courses are excluded from the 30-hour minimum.

Are citizens of one of the following predominantly English-speaking countries:
British Virgin Islands
Canada (excluding Quebec)
Grand Cayman Islands
St. Kitts & Nevis
St. Vincent & the Grenadines
Trinidad & Tobago
Turks & Caicos Islands
While there are other countries where English is spoken as one of several official languages, applicants who do not fall into one of the above categories are required to prove English language proficiency.
If you completed your education entirely in English, and in a country where English is considered an official language, you may submit a written appeal with your application explaining why you qualify for a TOEFL waiver. Appeals will be reviewed after all application items have been received.
