IELTS (International English Language Testing System)
IELTS is a testing arm of Cambridge University, United Kingdom ESOL examinations and the British Council. Students who wish to demonstrate English proficiency through the IELTS test should visit their website, for information about the administration of this test and how to have test results reported to Princeton in a timely fashion. Normally test results are mailed out in two weeks from the date of the test by IELTS administration and should be sent to:
Graduate Admission Office
ATTN: IELTS Test Results
One Clio Hall
Princeton, NJ 08544
Please note that IELTS scores expire after two years from your original test date. All scores MUST be valid through December 31.
Students must sign up to take the Academic Test version of IELTS. The Graduate School has set a 7.0 on the academic version of IELTS as the minimum to be considered for admission to Princeton doctoral programs. Note: IELTS test scores of 7.0 and above do not exempt international graduate students who accept Princeton’s offer of admission from the policy and requirements of the Graduate School’s English Language Program.
