● Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL), administered in various countries and the United States by the Educational Testing Service, Princeton, NJ 08541-6151: a minimum score of 213 CBT or 550 PBT is required for admission. At the graduate level, exceptions may be granted by the Dean of the College of Graduate Studies. TOEFL scores should be reported to the admissions specialist of ProfEd.

A solid academic background will help prepare you for success at the college level. To be ready for this challenge, we stress high academic achievement in several rigorous subjects. Central Michigan University and the Presidents Council of State Colleges and Universities strongly recommend the following high school background:
4 years of English
We also consider the trend in your grades. For example, if you did not do well your freshman year, we hope to see an upward trend in grades since then. By the end of your junior year, when you can submit an application for admission, you should have completed three years of English, mathematics, science and social science. Your senior year should include at least three classes in any of those four areas.
