International Transfer Student
Please note: Transfer admission decisions are made on a rolling basis.
SMU recommends a minimum DET score of 115, TOEFL iBT score of 90 (with specific minimum sub-score requirements), or an IELTS test of 6.5 or higher. The DET, TOEFL or IELTS is not required for any student who has studied for four years at a school whose language of instruction is solely in English. SMU's TOEFL and IELTS School Code is 6660.
All transfer students are required to complete college algebra or a college-level math course before transferring to SMU. If algebra I, geometry and algebra II were taken in high school and graduation was less than three years ago, this requirement is waived.
