English Conditional Admission

International applicants with TOEFL test scores of 42 - 79 Internet-Based (iBT)*/440 – 549 Paper-Based (PBT)* may, if otherwise qualified academically, be granted English-Conditional (EC) Admission, provided they complete the appropriate English as a Second Language (ESL) coursework in Juniata's Intensive English Program (IEP). Minimum section scores of 10 for the iBT* must also be met to be admitted.

The IEP follows all Juniata policies regarding advancement in its courses. Students may earn up to 15 credits in their ESL courses toward graduation requirements. While taking ESL courses the students’ English proficiency is evaluated by IEP staff and they may enroll in academic coursework outside the IEP according to an acceptable proficiency level and in consultation with their professors and advisors. There is no guarantee EC students will be able to take courses outside the IEP until they have finished all appropriate ESL courses.

A student whose GPA is such that s/he will be on academic probation may have to appear before the IEP Review Committee based on the recommendation of the IEP faculty and Director. The IEP Review Committee, in conjunction with the Registrar and the Student Academic Development Committee, will make recommendations for continuation at Juniata or other possible courses of action.

English Conditional Students will also be required to sign a Statement of Understanding concerning English-Conditional Admission prior to beginning their studies. Continued English support is offered, as needed, to all international students throughout their degree program. For more information, please refer to the Intensive English Program section.

*Equivalent IELTS and Pearson PTE scores are also accepted.
