Students whose native language is not English must meet Washburn's English Proficiency Requirement. Any one of the following can be used to satisfy this requirement.
Please also note:
Students who cannot meet these requirements will be admitted through the Intensive English Program. Certain departments may have higher TOEFL requirements. Students meeting some but not all section score requirements, see IE Student Guide for more details.
Students who cannot meet the above guidelines will be placed in the Intensive English classes by the staff of the program based on their test scores and transcripts. They must fulfill this requirement as soon as possible.
Students who have completed Freshman Composition at another U.S.- based institution are not automatically exempt from Intensive English courses. They may be required to take the reading course if deficiency in this area is determined.
