  • English Language Requirement
    • To be admitted into a degree program, international students who will not be graduating from an English educational system within the last two years, or for whom English is not the primary language, must submit official TOEFL, IELTS, DuoLingo, or Cambridge scores. The preferred TOEFL score for admissions is 79 (Internet Based Test [IBT]). The preferred IELTS score for admission is 6.0. The preferred DuoLingo score is 105. The preferred Cambridge score is 170.

      Students scoring below the preferred score may be deferred for enrollment to our Embry-Riddle Language Institute (ERLI). Admission to ERLI does not guarantee admission to an Embry-Riddle degree program. Admissions also encourages all applicants for whom English is not the primary language spoken at home to consider taking the SAT I to supplement their language proficiency exam scores.
