You may fulfill the English Proficiency requirements by doing BOTH of the following:
Scenario 1 – If you complete both Summer sessions after earning a 61 on the TOEFL IBT or a 5.5 on the IELTS, you must enter in the Fall Term.
Scenario 2 – If you complete one Summer session and one Fall session after earning a 61 on the TOEFL IBT or a 5.5 on the IELTS you must remain in CESL for the additional Fall session so that you may enter in Spring.
**You may NOT exit the CESL program for a session, THEN enter in the next academic term. Therefore, you should take these factors into consideration and plan your CESL coursework and application to a degree program accordingly, including your term of entry.
You must attend CESL until you earn at least a 61 on the TOEFL IBT or a 5.5 on the IELTS. Then, see instructions above for additional information.
Current or incoming CESL students who apply for University admission may be deemed ‘Academically Admissible’ to their proposed undergraduate or graduate degree programs after the required application review. Please note that the application review process for undergraduate and graduate applicants do vary.
If determined to be ‘Academically Admissible’, CESL students will be admitted to their proposed undergraduate or graduate degree program upon satisfaction of the English proficiency requirement and submission of the required financial support documentation. Admission cannot be granted before completion of the English Proficiency requirement.
Be aware that academic integrity issues that are added to your permanent record at CESL will be reported to the Office of Admissions and may affect your admission to the university.
Graduate Applicants – Correspondences from your department or a faculty member do NOT constitute an official offer of admission from The University of Oklahoma. Rather, these are simply notifications that you have been recommended for admission. You must be approved for admission by the Graduate College in addition to your academic unit. Only the Office of Graduate Admissions may extend an official offer of admission to The University of Oklahoma, Graduate College.
If you are not a current CESL student and are interested in joining the program, visit the OU CESL website to find application and schedule information.
