Because many of our classes are technical, the student must be able to read, understand, and speak English sufficiently to be successful. To help us understand a student's English skills, some formal indication of English abilities is required. This can be a TOEFL score or another type of exam, description of English studies from the home university, or explanation of student’s language abilities from the home university coordinator. A general guideline is that students should have English skills equal to a 79 on the TOEFL exam. Please send all documents to studyabroad@mst.edu.
