Step 3: English Proficiency & Requirements
English Proficiency Testing
All international students and any applicants educated outside the U.S. must demonstrate proficiency in English. Those who received an undergraduate degree from a university within the U.S. DO NOT need to take an English proficiency test.
Those whose native language is not English, or whose undergraduate degree was not from a university within the U.S., will be required to submit an official score from the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL). Submitted scores must not be more than 2 years old, have a minimum score of 563 (paper-based) or 85 (internet-based) for full admissions, and have a minimum score of 17 in each section.
We also accept the International English Language Testing System (IELTS). Applicants who complete the IELTS may submit an official score report that is not more than 2 years old, have a minimum score of 6.5 for full admissions with a minimum of 6.0 in each section.
Send your official TOEFL/IELTS scores directly to Weber State University (not to ATCAS) using the school code 4941.
Please have your official TOEFL/IELTS scores sent directly to:
International Student and Scholar Center
Weber State University
3885 West Campus Drive, Dept. 1130
Ogden, UT 84408-1130
TOEFL (internet-based) scores between 84-70 or IELTS scores between 5.5-6.0:
May still be admitted conditionally. Students would be required to either retake the TOEFL test or IELTS test in attempt to achieve the minimum scores, or they can take the Duolingo English Test and achieve a minimum score of 105. As with the TOEFL and IELTS scores, Duolingo scores should also be sent to Webers State University and the International Student and Scholar Center. Whichever conditional route a student chooses, we highly encourage international students to invest in an English tutor prior to taking a second English test.
