In order to begin a graduate program at Pittsburg State University, all International students must submit an official, passing TOEFL or IELTS score to the Office of Continuing and Graduate Studies. Students who do not submit such a score will be required to enroll in and complete PSU's Intensive English Program (IEP), prior to beginning any graduate coursework.* For additional information regarding IEP, please visit: http://www.pittstate.edu/iep

How to Submit Test Scores to PSU:

TOEFL: Contact ETS and request that your score be sent to PSU electronically. Our university code is 6336. You do not need to enter a departmental code. Please visit their site for more information: www.ets.org/toefl

IELTS: Contact IELTS and request that an official score sheet be sent to PSU. Please visit their site for more information: www.ielts.org

(IELTS is jointly owned by the British Council, IDP: IELTS Australia and the University of Cambridge ESOL Examinations).

Successful completion of the Pittsburg State University Intensive English Program may be substituted for a TOEFL or IELTS score unless otherwise indicated.

  • IEP Transfer Students (Currently Studying in the U.S.)

    PLEASE NOTE: Unfortunately, due to the fact that our Intensive English Program is at capacity, we are not accepting IEP transfer students at this time. If you are currently studying in the United States, you must submit a passing TOEFL or IELTS score before your application for admission can be processed. No conditional admission will be offered. The application fee is non-refundable. (Effective 1/31/2012)
