For International Applicants

For university coursework done outside the United States, students may need to submit transcripts through a foreign credit evaluation service. The Admissions Office must receive a “course-by-course evaluation” or a “detail report.” There are several such services that are acceptable, including the following:

World Education Services
Educational Credential Evaluators, Inc.
International Education Research Foundation

TOEFL: In addition to the regular application materials, applicants must submit scores from the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) if English is not the applicant’s first language. The TOEFL (Internet iBT) score required for master-level applicants (including Doctor of Ministry) is 92 and for PhD level applicants the required score is 100. And the Trinity Code for submitting TOEFL scores is 1797.
