International Applicants

Special considerations for international applicants

Some parts of the admissions process are unique to you as an international student. All international applicants must demonstrate proficiency in English, and there are program-specific GRE requirements for international graduate students.

English proficiency requirements

The IU School of Education in Indianapolis requires all international applicants to submit passing TOEFL test scores (minimum: 79 on iBT). The EAP placement exam is waived for students with a TOEFL iBT score of 100+. Other English language proficiency exams, such as the IELTS, are not accepted for admission to the School of Education. Refer to your specific program for full application requirements.

GRE requirement for graduate programs

Taking the GRE revised General Test is a prerequisite for many of our master's degree programs. If the program you are applying to requires the GRE, we recommend you take the exam before applying to ensure your official scores are received by SOE as we review your application.

All fellowship applicants are required to take the GRE.
