Is there an English proficiency requirement?
We recognize that many of our international students come to the Monterey Institute with sophisticated language backgrounds. Terms like "native-speaker," "fluent," or "bilingual" often do not accurately reflect the rich backgrounds of our students.
In order to maintain the quality and integrity of the Monterey Institute experience, we recommend that non-native English speaking candidates have a high English language proficiency.
Recommended minimum language test scores:
- Internet-based test: 79
- Writing sub-score: 23
- No sub-scores below 19
- 6.5 Overall
- No Sub-score below 6.0
Note: Test scores not required.
