us universities accepting ielts score

Recently, more and more U.S. colleges and universities had started accepting IELTS score as a major admission requirement.

If you have taken an IELTS test already, it’s not required to take TOEFL anymore. You can still apply for college admission with IELTS score.

Before that you must decide IELTS or TOEFL For USA and then take one English Proficiency Test. International Students ( non-native English speakers) are required to prove their English Proficiency while applying for college admission in America.

Looking for complete List of Universities in USA and their minimum IELTS Score?

What is the Minimum IELTS Score Required to Study in the USA?

If your score is less than 5.5 ( TOEFL 46 to 59), you should consider retaking the IELTS Test. If you are targetting average Universities, then IELTS score of 6.5 or more is required.

Universities do give conditional admission if your  score is less than minimum required score.


  • Your Score is 6.5
  • Minimum Required: 7.0

Then you maybe still get conditional admission, but you could be asked to take an English Course  after arriving in the university campus.

  130. Shruthika on June 5, 2010 at 5:24 PM

    Hello this is Shruthi,

    I have a lot of questions and doubts, so i will start of with a brief introduction about my self,

    I am a bachelors of Architecture from R.V.C.E, Bangalore.(1999- 2005)
    Masters in Social Science(Planning and Environment) from RMIT, Melbourne.(2007- 2009)

    Work experience.
    1. worked for architectural firms for 3 years.
    2. worked as a trainee in Cistup. IISc, Bangalore. (3 months)

    I am now looking a Phd in Planning field (Smart growth, Gender in planning, Mixed use planning). I am an average student in terms of studies, but hard working and dedicated worker and have been recognized for my outstanding performance by my employers.
    In my Masters i used to take 4 course per sem for visa obligation and used to give only 3 exams. Hence my GPA is less though i have got couple of distinctions and credits. Similar situation has occurred in my bachelors as well.
    will this be an issue to get a seat in the universities, will i be given a chance to explain myself as the best fit for that position?

    I had written my IELTS before joining the Masters course 3 years ago and had scored 6.5 (L 7.5, R7, W6, s6) so is this sufficient or should i write my TOFEL ?

    I have heard few people saying that if i have done my Masters in other English speaking countries i need not write my GRE as well is this true?

    Is it rite for me to speak about this to the professors in the universities i have selected?

    I am planning to take up my GRE next month and i am doing my best to do good
    so should i wait till i get my marks to talk to the professors ?

    I have got 45 universities in US which gives Phd in Planning course according to APA, but i am not able to skim the best once or put them in order according to there rankings or tiers. By doing so i can eliminate the bad once. is there any site which can help me do this?

    Thanking you,

    • HSB on June 6, 2010 at 2:15 PM

      I had written my IELTS before joining the Masters course 3 years ago and had scored 6.5 (L 7.5, R7, W6, s6) so is this sufficient or should i write my TOFEL ?

      >> TOEFL and IETLS are valid only for 2 years. You have to re-write either TOEFL or IELTS.

      I have heard few people saying that if i have done my Masters in other English speaking countries i need not write my GRE as well is this true?
      >> Incorrect. You maybe be able to get GRE waived, but check with universities.

      Is it rite for me to speak about this to the professors in the universities i have selected?
      >> Yes, you should contact the professors.

      I am planning to take up my GRE next month and i am doing my best to do good so should i wait till i get my marks to talk to the professors ?
      >> Concentrate on getting good score as of now. If you have time, browse universities. – Check

      I have got 45 universities in US which gives Phd in Planning course according to APA, but i am not able to skim the best once or put them in order according to there rankings or tiers. By doing so i can eliminate the bad once. is there any site which can help me do this?
