Helpful Tips for Setting Score Requirements
- Set separate section score requirements as well as a total score requirement.
- Setting high requirements may limit your applicant pool, which means you may be rejecting qualified applicants.
- Setting requirements too low can lead to accepting students who may not have the English-language skills to succeed at your institution.
- Set different test section score requirements for different academic departments.
- Set flexible scores initially.
- Conduct periodic reviews of your score requirements.
- Consider whether or not English language learning support is available at your institution.
