Students whose first language is not English must submit some form of testing to provide evidence of their English proficiency. TOEFL and IELTS are the preferred tests, though you may contact us about submitting another form of testing such as ELPT. These tests may be waived if you submit SAT scores with a critical reading score above 600. W&J does not have a minimum TOEFL score, but we typically look for a score of 580 or higher on the paper based test, 233 or higher on the computer based exam, or 85 on the iBT. For the IELTS we generally look for scores of 6.5 or higher out of 9. The ETS code for W&J is 2967.
W&J also offers conditional admission via the English Language Institute (ELI) at W&J, a bridge program for students who are preparing to study at Washington & Jefferson College or other universities in the United States at the undergraduate or graduate level.
