Entry Requirements

Since lectures, laboratory instructions and written and oral examinations at VCU are conducted in English, you must be proficient in the language. All applicants whose native language is not English must sit for the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL), offered by the Educational Testing Service in countries throughout the world, or the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) test and arrange for the testing agency to send the results to VCU (code 5570). The required TOEFL score for undergraduate applicants is 80 iBT, 550 PBT or IELTS of 6.0 (academic band score).

Students who have not taken a TOEFL exam or IELTS test or have not achieved the required score may take the VCU English Language Placement exam on arrival. However, please note that students who do not achieve the required level of proficiency will be required to take English courses prior to enrollment in the academic program at an additional expense.
