TOEFL Exemption

IUPUI recognizes the following countries as having English as the official language used for conducting public business and the sole language of instruction in higher education. At the recommendation of their academic programs, applicants with a bachelor's or doctoral degree from an accredited university in one of these countries may be admitted for graduate study at IUPUI without presenting additional evidence of English proficiency.

Students offered admission under this category will be required to take the IUPUI English for Academic Purposes (EAP) Test and enroll in any EAP courses that are prescribed as a result of this test. In the unlikely event the test results indicate that a student is "Not Ready for IUPUI EAP courses," the student will be referred to appropriate intensive English language instruction, with admission deferred until the student is able to demonstrate sufficient proficiency in English to begin academic studies.
