A Special Note for international applicants from non-English speaking countries

  1. All must submit a TOEFL iBT or IELTS test score.
  2. For scores of TOEFL iBT 80 or IELTS 6.5 or higher, the applicant qualifies for full admission to the MBA, provided that all other application requirements are met.
  3. For scores of  TOEFL iBT  66 – 79 or IELTS 6, the applicant qualifies for conditional admission as a graduate student in the MBA. The conditional status is removed after a student demonstrates language proficiency either through (1) resubmitting qualifying test scores or (2) successful completion of the English Language Transition (ELT) Program.  If all other application requirements are met, the student is admitted on a conditional basis. The student may come to UWRF and enroll in the ELT program to improve English skills. Upon successful completion of the program, the student is given full admission status.
