Undergraduate Admissions for International Students

Admission to undergraduate programs of the University for students other than those who are citizens or permanent residents of the United States requires the submission of all academic records for evaluation, including equivalent high school studies and any attempted college-level course work. Documentation of financial support must be submitted at the time of application for admission. A minimum score of 500 is required on the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL). All international TOEFL scores must be validated by an institutional TOEFL upon arrival at The University of Toledo. A student who does not achieve 500 on the institutional TOEFL will be referred to the American Language Institute for intensive English study.

Upon acceptance, the appropriate immigration document (Form I-20 or IAP-66) will be issued by the University to the student. Further information may be obtained from the Office of International Services.
