TOEFL Score 77, Can I Apply for Admission at US Universities?

Raghuram Sukumar TOEFL 69 Comments

International Students applying for college admission at U.S. universities are required to submit their TOEFL scores.

Most American colleges and universities will require the minimum TOEFL score of 79, but what if the score is slightly less than 79?

We have already discussed about the Minimum TOEFL Score for U.S. universities in one of the previous articles; this will be continuation of that article.

There are a couple of things that can happen if the TOEFL score is lower than the required minimum score:

  1. The university admission committee will look at your credentials like academic score, English fluency in Statement of Purpose, score in English course, and GRE Score.
    If they think you have sufficient proficiency in English, you will get an unconditional admission.
  2. If the committee members feel you don’t have the required English speaking and writing skills, you will get a conditional admission.
    Here, you will either have to take one English course, or pass the English exam similar to TOEFL to be provided by the school.

If you happen to get a conditional admission, you can always re-take the TOEFL exam so as to improve your score and get your conditional admission status waived.

Some schools will give the option to take another English test in school as well.
