If you are on a temporary visa and educated in a non-English speaking environment, you must demonstrate proficiency in the English language by submitting test scores from TOEFL or IELTS (Academic Level) or PTE (Academic level). Please request to have your official test scores sent to our processing center, CUNY/UAPC and/or list our University code 2950 when registering for the exams. Visit the TOEFL, IELTS or PTE website for more information. Graduate applicants should use GRE/TOEFL code: 2113 to have official test scores sent to SLU’s Office of Admissions.
Duolingo English Test: Given the recent suspension of activities at testing centers, applicants can now satisfy SLU’s English proficiency exam requirements by taking the Duolingo English Test (DET). Unlike the TOEFL, which has to be taken at a testing center, the DET can be taken at home. We will require a score of 105+ on the DET, which is equivalent to a 80 on the TOEFL.
