Admissions - International Students

Catalogue change: 11/13/2023

DuoLingo English proficiency test score minimum changed from 100 to 115:

International students must present evidence of their ability to speak, read, and write the English language. Students from countries where English is not the primary language, or that did not earn a baccalaureate degree or graduate degree from a regionally accredited US institution, must present the results of the TOEFL examination (Test of English as a Foreign Language), IELTS (International English Language Testing System), or Duolingo English Test as a part of their application for admission. TOEFL, IELTS, and Duolingo scores are valid for two years from the date the test is administered. A minimum score of 79 (TOEFL iBT) / 550 (TOEFL paper test), 6.5 on the IELTS, or 115 on the Duolingo English Test is required for admission. Please note that satisfactory performance on one of these tests is a requirement for admission but does not guarantee acceptance to the university. Alternatively, students may fulfill the English proficiency requirement when they successfully complete Level 4 in UNCW’s ESL program.
