All applicants whose first language is not English must take the Test of English as a Second Language (TOEFL) and score higher than 525 (70 on the internet-based test) in order to be admitted. Applicants must submit academic records from their country that are at least equivalent to the admission requirements for American students. Students who take the TOEFL are not required to take the ACT (except for architecture applicants), but it is strongly advised for placement purposes. Students from English speaking countries must take the ACT. All students must provide proof of financial support in accordance with Immigration regulations. All other Immigration and Naturalization Service requirements must be met for admission. All admitted students must have sufficient knowledge of the English language to benefit from a program of study.
Applicants from foreign countries must meet the guidelines set forth in Louisiana Tech’s International Admission publication. Contact the Admissions Office for a copy.
