An applicant who has not earned or substantially completed a post-secondary degree from an institution whose primary language of instruction is English may be required to take the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) or an equivalent recognized test of English language proficiency and to demonstrate an acceptable proficiency level. As an example, successful applicants to the Two-year JD Program typically have a TOEFL score of approximately 600 on the paper-based test, 250 on the computer-based test, or 100 on the Internet-based test, or a score of 7.0 on the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) test. The College of Law's school identification number is 003131-00. 

The Law Admissions Office may also require an in-person or telephone interview with a member of the Admissions Committee and a personal essay or other writing sample.
