Fluency in written and spoken English is essential for success in a Salus University academic program as well as to help ensure patient/client safety and/or effective communication with members of a healthcare or educational team. Official results from the TOEFL (or IELTS) examination are required for all students for whom English is a second language (ESL).

Exceptions will be made for ESL applicants who hold degrees or diplomas from accredited post-secondary institutions in countries where English is the official language and in which English is the language of instruction (e.g. the United States, Canada, England, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand).  

A recommended score for the TOEFL iBT is 84. A score of 21 is recommended for the speaking section; 21 for the writing section; 21 for the listening section; and 21 for the reading section. Official scores from the Academic IELTS examination will be accepted in substitution for the TOEFL (recommended scores comparable to the TOEFL). The TOEFL (or Academic IELTS) examination must be taken within two years prior to the start date of the entering class to which an applicant seeks admission.
