The English Support Program

Admission of international students to Muskingum College is based mainly on high school grades and test scores. An Internet-Based TOEFL Score of 79-80 (Computer-Based TOEFL score of 213, or Paper-Based TOEFL score of 550) is generally required for admission. If you are academically qualified and have an Internet-Based TOEFL score of at least 64 (Computer-Based TOEFL score of at least 180 or Paper-Based TOEFL score of at least 507), you can be accepted as a full-time student by participating in our English Support Program. If accepted, you will take a variety of ESL classes for your first two semesters, in addition to your regular classes. Students may go completely into mainstream courses upon approval of the ESL Coordinator. This decision is based on the student’s grades, performance in ESL classes, results of an institutional proficiency test, and the recommendations of professors. No additional TOEFL score is required.

Students' schedules vary depending on their interests and abilities. Students in the English Support Program are encouraged to take some general requirements right away, like First Year Seminar, mathematics and laboratory sciences.
