If you are from a country where English is the official language along with one or more national languages, you MAY need to submit proof of English proficiency. To get the English proficiency requirement waived, you will need to submit proof that English was the only language of instruction at your high school or university.

Students who do not meet the English proficiency requirement may enroll in the English Language Program (ELP).
