All international students and any applicants educated outside the U.S. must demonstrate proficiency in English. Those whose native language is not English, or whose language of instruction for their undergraduate degree was not English, will be required to submit an official score from the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL), which is not more than 2 years old and on which a minimum score of 563 (paper-based) or 85 (internet-based) has been earned.
We also accept the International English Language Testing System (IELTS). Applicants who complete the IELTS may have an official score report, which is not more than 2 years old and on which a minimum score of 6.5 has been earned sent to the MSAT Program Director.
Students who have not earned the minimum required English proficiency scores may still be admitted conditionally. These students would be required to begin ESL and other coursework at Weber State University 1 semester prior to beginning MSAT coursework. During this preparatory semester, students would be required to complete, with a grade of a C+ or better, approximately 8 credits of ESL courses and complete, with a grade of C or better, approximately 6 credits of MSAT prerequisite courses. The MSAT Program Director will determine which ESL and prerequisite courses are most appropriate based on the student’s undergraduate coursework and English proficiency scores.
