Test Scores

All test scores must come directly from the testing agency. Please check which exams are required for you to apply for each program.

MELAB - score of 69 or better.

See our English Proficiency Policy for other English Proficiency options.  

If your English language skills are not satisfactory enough to apply for general admissions, apply to our English as a Second Language Program. We help high school, undergraduate and graduate students improve their English.


Canadian students are required to submit an SAT or ACT score. All other international students are not required to take the SAT or the ACT since it is sometimes difficult to arrange this test abroad.
