English Proficiency Requirements

All applicants for whom English is not their first language must submit proof of English proficiency to be considered for admission. First-year students with 4 years at a high school where English is the language of instruction AND who have not taken any ESL/ELL classes in 11th or 12th grades have satisfied our English proficiency requirement.

Students should have their official scores sent directly to Simmons. Self submitted or self reported scores will not be accepted.
