    TOEFL scores and ESL Programs (English as a Second Language)

    If your native language is not English and/or if your primary language of instruction has not been English, you will be required to take the TOEFL or IELTS.


    (visit the TOEFL or IELTS  Web sites for more information).


    For the Undergraduate programs, you must score a minimum of 79 on the TOEFL exam or a 6.5 on the IELTS. (For tests taken prior to 2006, the minimum score required is 550 on the written test or 213 on the computer-based test.) Exceptions will be made on an individual basis.


    Graduate school requirements may vary.


    Loyola University Chicago's English Language Learning Program (ELLP) is designed for people who are serious about learning English.


    Our ELLP Program is ideal for non-native speakers of English preparing for university study in the U.S., or for those who are simply seeking to enhance their English skills. Students receive support from experienced language instructors and benefit from hands-on learning opportunities. While studying in the ELLP Program helps students prepare for degree work in English, it does not guarantee admission into a degree program.


    Other Test Required for Admission:
    SAT/ACT; TOEFL/IELTS/TELA; GRE for Arts and Sciences programs, GMAT for Business programs, GRE and for some programs, MAT for Education, MCAT for Medical Sciences programs. Transcript Evaluation. Letter of Recommendation
