International Study Center entry requirements
Acceptance into International Year One or the Pre-Master's Program is based on the academic entry requirements for entry to Roosevelt University.
Since the ISC programs will improve your language proficiency to satisfy the University's English level admission requirements, students are accepted with lower English levels than those required for direct entry to a University degree.
English language level
The International Study Center accepts TOEFL, IELTS or Password English test scores for admission purposes.&n;If you have neither TOEFL nor IELTS scores, you must take the free Password English test. Contact us to arrange to take the Password test.
* 1-semester English for Academic Purposes, followed by 3-semester IFY
The length of your ISC program depends on your English level as determined by English tests on arrival at Roosevelt University. Program duration for each student is confirmed after a TOEFL test, Roosevelt writing test, and ISC speaking interview.
