US Says yes to IELTS!

More than 2,000 U.S. Academic Institutions Now Accept IELTS - 22nd October 2008

California State University System, Dartmouth are the Newest Schools to Recognize the Leading English Language Test

LOS ANGELES, October 22, 2008 – The International English Language Testing System (IELTS) today announced that more than 2,000 U.S. academic faculties, colleges and universities accept its English language proficiency test. Most recently Dartmouth College undergraduate admissions and the 23-campus California State University graduate school system recognized the test further proving its efficacy.

"Prospective students and determined international professionals now have an even greater opportunity to gain successful admission to any of these prestigious schools," said Beryl E. Meiron, U.S. Executive Director for IELTS International. "By choosing IELTS students are one step closer to studying in the U.S. because it proves theyve got the necessary language skills to help them succeed in their studies and make the most of the exciting opportunities available on campus and in their new communities."

Dartmouth College, located in Hanover, New Hampshire, now accepts IELTS for undergraduate admissions and is accepting IELTS test scores for the 2009-2010 school year. It has joined other Ivy League schools that already accept the test at either the undergraduate, graduate or professional school levels including Brown, Columbia, Cornell, Harvard, Princeton University, the University of Pennsylvania and Yale.

Additionally, international students wishing to apply for admission to one of the California State University graduate schools can now use IELTS as an indicator of their English language skills. A minimum band score of 6 in the Academic Module of IELTS is needed for meeting the English language requirement for post-baccalaureate admission to the university. Prospective students should check with the department and the campus where they want to apply for specific band score requirements.

"Access to international education is dependent upon being able to offer institutions an impeccable application. As more and more institutions recognize IELTS, students will have greater options and variety in U.S. undergraduate and graduate level education," said Meiron.

Candidates can take the IELTS exam at more than 500 test centers worldwide and use their test scores at 6,000 institutions around the world. Admission requirements vary between schools. Students should check with each of their prospective schools to determine at which level – undergraduate or graduate – the IELTS test is accepted
