English Proficiency Requirements

Do I need to show English proficiency as part of my application?
Applicants who have attended a school where the primary language of instruction is English can have this requirement waived. However, all applicants need to show results from the TOEFL, IELTS, SAT, or ACT exam, or be receiving an IB diploma. Mount Saint Mary College reserves the right to request any additional requirements in order to complete an application.

What are the minimum requirements?
TOEFL – 79 internet-based test
IELTS – 6.0 overall band score
SAT – 1110 reading and writing combined
ACT – 22 or higher
