International Credentialing Evaluation Process

Domestic or international applicants that have academic credits from or attended an international institution must have their educational credentials earned outside the United States verified by an approved international credentialing evaluation service.  Each of the university's 11 schools and colleges has specific procedures that must be followed by international applicants. Visit our International Applications page for more information.

English Proficiency Requirement

Academic success at the University of Miami depends on one’s ability to communicate effectively in English. To prove language proficiency, students must take either the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) or the International English Language Testing System (IELTS).  

For Spring, Summer, and Fall 2021 admissions, the Graduate School is temporarily accepting results from the Duolingo English Test to fulfill the English proficiency test admissions requirement. The minimum score required is 105. Exams taken from July 15, 2019, onward are accepted.
