International Students

In addition to the eligibility and application requirements, international students must also submit the following:  

Proof of English Language 

  • TOEFL score of 88 or
  • IELTS score of 6.5 or
  • Verification of English language proficiency from the Gonzaga University ISSS office or
  • An official recommendation from Gonzaga University's English Language Center 

Due to Covid-19 restrictions, TOEFL testing is now online. You can learn more by visiting the TOEFL website.

If you do not meet the English proficiency requirements listed above, but believe your English to be equivalent to these levels for graduate studies at Gonzaga University due to work, education or language immersion experience, please contact your Admissions Specialist.

*TOEFL/IELTS EXCEPTIONS:
International students whose primary and secondary education took place in Canada (English-speaking provinces), Great Britain, Australia, Ireland, New Zealand, or the U.S. are exempt from this requirement. Students born in one of these countries yet educated elsewhere are still required to satisfy the English proficiency requirement.
