Applicants from non-English-speaking nations must provide evidence of proficiency in the English language with their application for admission to Elizabeth City State University. Scores on the test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) or the Michigan Test are required as are SAT/ACT scores; no application for admission is complete without such scores, and no Form I-20 will be authorized without them. For students born in non-English-speaking nations but educated in senior high schools in the United States, scores on the SAT or ACT can substitute for scores on the TOEFL or the Michigan Test. Each student must submit official proof of financial support and an English translation of all transcripts. It is preferred that all documents be sent to the Admissions Office six months prior to the date of entry.
