Central Connecticut State University
Graduate Student Admissions Requirements Regarding
English Language Proficiency Methods

TOEFL scores are the normal method of determining English language proficiency for graduate admission to Central Connecticut State University. (A TOEFL score of 550/213 is normally required for admission to graduate programs and must include no sectional score lower than 46/14.)

However, other methods can be used that require consultation with the Director of IELP and Associate Director of Graduate Admissions, and approval by the Dean, School of Graduate Studies. The academic department chair may then recommend a student as being sufficiently proficient in English to succeed in that particular major/discipline. When this occurs, the student is conditionally admitted to the Graduate Program.

These methods may include:

  • Successful completion of the IELP Transition Program (i.e. recorded grade of "Satisfactory" with in-house corresponding letter grade equivalent of B or better) in conjunction with successful completion of 2-3 credit bearing courses, either undergraduate or graduate, taken simultaneously (i.e. with grades of B or better) may be considered as evidence of English proficiency in lieu of TOEFL. The credit bearing course may not include Mathematics.

  • Transfer work from U.S. colleges or universities may also be used to assess English proficiency. The student must have earned "B" or better in nine semester credit hours of study consisting of English Composition, English Literature, and one other non-quantitative course in Behavioral Science, Social Science or Humanities.

  • Performance on standardized exams other than TOEFL may be considered together with other evidence or oral and written proficiency.

If a student is conditionally admitted to a graduate program, the academic department chair will outline the conditions that must be completed before full admission is awarded. These conditions must be related to demonstration of English language proficiency. Students will be sent a letter of conditional admission. When such students meet the conditions, the advisor will notify the Dean, School of Graduate Studies to request full admission to the program.

(Note: Students whose English proficiency cannot be verified or whose TOEFL score is below normal CCSU standards, but who are otherwise academically eligible for admission, may be admitted on condition of participation in IELP prior to beginning their academic studies or in conjunction therewith.)
