Requirements for International Admission to Dedman College

Language Requirement

International students applying from countries where English is not the native language are required to provide scores on the Pearson Test of English (PTE Academic) or the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL). Teaching Assistants are required to show proficiency in spoken English by a satisfactory score on the TSE (Test of Spoken English) exam or passing an English as a Second Language course after matriculation. The score from the TWE can strengthen your application and provide an additional distinguishing measurement. The PTE Academic/TOEFL requirement will be waived for international students who have received a degree from a U.S. degree-granting university or institution. Test scores from IELTS are also accepted.

Financial Support

If admitted, foreign students must provide a Certification of Finance Form/Letter of Financial Backing as evidence of financial support, which must be bank-certified.

Degrees from Foreign Universities

International applicants who hold a bachelor's degree should not assume that these degrees will be automatically accepted in U.S. universities. Decisions will be made on the academic standings of the institutions from which the applicant graduated. Professional diplomas and higher certificates from technical or vocational schools are normally not considered as equal to a bachelor's degree.
