International Students

Fluency in written and spoken English is essential for success in a Salus University academic program as well as to help ensure student/patient/client safety and/or effective communication with members of an education and rehabilitation 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). 

The TOEFL (or IELTS) examination must be taken within two years prior to the start date of the entering class to which an applicant seeks admission.

All official college transcripts from foreign countries must be submitted in English to the World Education Services - www.wes.org - for document-by-document evaluation before submission to the Salus University Office of Admissions.
