Graduate Record Examination (GRE) scores
All international students applying for our Master's programs must submit GRE scores. International students applying for our online Graduate Certificate Programs are not required to submit GRE scores. GRE test scores older than five years may not be submitted by the Educational Testing Service. The School of Public Health-Bloomington admissions committee will evaluate official copies of older scores, when submitted by the applicant, to determine whether or not the older scores may be accepted for application purposes. Information and application forms may be obtained from the Educational Testing Service.

Scores are available about six weeks after the test is taken. It is the responsibility of the applicant to take the GRE test at a time that will allow scores to arrive at the SPH Academic Records Office to meet all school deadlines.
Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) scores
All applicants whose first language is not English must submit TOEFL scores. For both undergraduate and graduate admission, one of the following minimum TOEFL scores is required:
The TOEFL is administered by the Educational Testing Service once each month at locations throughout the world. Information about TOEFL administration schedules may be obtained from the Educational Testing Service.
In cases where the TOEFL is not available, a minimum score of 7 on the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) will meet the English language requirement.
Students whose first language is not English must also take an English language placement test upon arrival at Indiana University. The results of this test are used to determine what, if any, remedial English courses must be successfully completed before the graduate study begins. International students should understand that all admissions are granted conditionally, upon verification of English language proficiency, and that enrollment in graduate course work is not permitted, or is limited until all language deficiencies have been removed.
