Applicants for Whom English is a Second Language


Upon arrival at Springfield College, all students for whom English is a second language will be assessed for English language proficiency. Following the assessment, each student will receive appropriate academic advisement pertaining to specific course selection.

Applicants will be considered for conditional acceptance if they are in good academic standing and have met all admission requirements, except proof of English proficiency as determined by a minimum recommended TOEFL score of 550 (CBT equivalent is 213). Although unavailable in certain programs, the conditional acceptance will generally be available to those applicants who have scored between 450 and 549 (CBT equivalent is 133 to 212) on the TOEFL. Students with a TOEFL result below 450, or those who present no TOEFL result, will apply directly to the Intensive English Program, International Center, at Springfield College.

A conditionally accepted student will be granted full matriculation upon the successful completion of either ESOL 6: English for Speakers of Other Languages–Communication Skills or the TOEFL examination. Each student must also obtain a letter of recommendation from a faculty member of the intensive English program in order to obtain graduate student status.
