  3. Students should have their school forward to the Admissions Office an official English translation of the high school transcript(s) as well as an official transcript of first term senior grades when available. Transfer students should have their school forward to the Admissions Office an official English translation of transcripts of final secondary school work as well as any previous undergraduate study.
  4. The official results of the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) should be forwarded to the Undergraduate Admissions Office. IELTS, EIKEN, or PTE Academic scores will also be accepted.
