English Proficiency Information:

The TOEFL, IELTS and STEP EIKEN exams are not required in order to be admitted to Clark College. However, if you plan to enter your academic program directly, without studying in the Intensive English Language Program (IELP), you must submit an official test score to the Office of International Programs at Clark College (school code: 4055) before orientation:

TOEFL: You will need to score at least 68 on the internet-based test with at least 17 in the writing section.

IELTS: You will need to score at least 6.0 overall with a minimum score of 5.5 on all band scores.

STEP EIKEN: You will need a score of at least Grade pre-1.

1. All scores are only valid for 2 years from the day the test was taken.

2. If a TOEFL, IELTS or STEP EIKEN score is not provided, or the provided score is below the scores indicated above, you will be required to take Intensive English Language Program (IELP) placement tests to measure your English language ability.

3. Based on the IELP test results you may be required to register for IELP courses before entering into your academic program.
