Citizenship/Residency Requirement

Applicants to Baptist College must either be a United States citizen or a Permanent Resident. All Baptist College applicants whose native tongue is not English will be required to submit, as part of their admissions requirement, a TOEFL score of 550 or above. For applicants whose native tongue is not English and who have graduated from a U.S. high school, the TOEFL will not be required.

To confirm the countries whose native tongue is English, the following website will be used by Baptist College admissions officers to determine native tongue. Click on the link, select the appropriate country, and then select people and society.   If an applicant has extenuating circumstances regarding this requirement, a request for review must be submitted to the Dean of Enrollment Management.

The test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) measures the ability of students whose native tongue is not English as it is spoken, written, and heard in college/university settings. Students who have TOEFL scores over a year old will be required to submit new scores. The TOEFL is provided by the Educational Testing Service (ETS).
