    Note: Scores must be less than two years old from the first day of class of the proposed term of entry. 
  • IELTS - Students must submit a minimum score of 6.5
    Note: Scores must be less than two years old from the first day of class of the proposed entry term.
  • PTE - Students must submit a minimum score of 58

Note: All test scores must come directly from the Testing Service to Marist College. The Marist report code is 2400. Copies of test scores will delay the admission process since an I-20 will not be issued until official GRE and IELTS/TOEFL/PTE documents have been verified. 

The English Proficiency Exam requirement can be waived for students who have met any of the following criteria:

  • Attended a U.S. high school for a minimum of four years
  • Completed one academic year studying at a United States college or university
