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 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. 

For applicants to the Physician Assistant program, the minimum required score for the TOEFL iBT is 94. A minimum score of 26 is required for the speaking section; minimum of 24 for the writing section; minimum of 22 for the listening section; and minimum 22 for the reading section. Official scores from the IELTS examination will be accepted in substitution for the TOEFL (minimum score requirements comparable to the TOEFL).
