The University of Alabama at Birmingham will accept satisfactory TOEFL or IELTS proficiency examinations for admission to graduate programs. Test scores must be sent directly from the testing institution.

Applicants whose primary language is not English must submit an official TOEFL or IELTS test score that is not more than five (5) years old. Applicants who have received a bachelor's degree from an accredited U.S. institution or from institutions in countries where English is the primary language are not required to submit the TOEFL or IELTS score. Some departments may require the TOEFL or IELTS regardless of previous educational experience.
