Graduate Conditional Admission is available for international students who are not qualified for direct admission because they have not yet reached the level of English-language proficiency required for graduate study.
Conditional Admission acts as a bridge for regular admission at the university. It allows students to become familiar with the university’s culture and education while improving their English proficiency before starting a high-stakes graduate program.
In order for a student to be conditionally admitted, he or she must submit the required documentation (transcripts, recommendation letters, etc.) but does not need to submit TOEFL, GRE or GMAT scores at the time of application.
Students that are offered Conditional Admission are required to complete Level 10 of The Language Connection’s English Language Institute (ELI). The ELI is a non-credit intensive English program. Students take an ELI placement test and are placed in the appropriate level upon arrival at St. John’s. Candidates will submit their GRE or GMAT scores while enrolled in the ELI. Acceptable scores must be submitted to be eligible for full admission. Completing Level 10 of TLC will permit the waiver of TOEFL scores. Once a student has met English proficiency and standardized testing requirements, he or she is then eligible to be a fully matriculated student.
