Admission for International Students

Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL): A score of 500 PBT/61 IBT is required for conditional admission or 550 PBT/79 IBT for regular admission.

CMU DOES NOT require a third party evaluation for most transcripts!

Upon arrival at the university, they will be required to take an English proficiency test administered by CMU's English Language Institute (ELI). The results of the test will be used to determine the number of courses they will be required to take through the ELI. Such conditionally admitted students will be allowed to take a restricted number of courses in their academic disciplines concurrently with the ELI courses and must complete all required ELI courses by the end of their first year at CMU. Once satisfactory proficiency in English has been demonstrated, as determined by ELI policies these restrictions will be removed. Please note that students are required to pay tuition for ELI courses just as they would for any other CMU course.
