Non-immigrant students must provide the DSO with the following documents at the time of enrollment prior to start date:

In addition, non-immigrant students must provide all documents required by DHS and Brookline College and meet any admittance requirement stated, by the College Catalog.
Proof of English Language Proficiency
All non-immigrant student applicants must provide Brookline College with proof of English language skills to pursue enrollment with the College. Non-immigrant students can either: a) provide, in form of official transcripts successful completion of coursework from an accredited high school or English language school certified with SEVP, b) take the TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) test to determine their language skills in English and meet the minimum score requirements.
A minimum score of 550 on the paper-based and 84 on the internet-based TOEFL test is required as proof of proficiency in English. This test must be submitted directly from the testing organization to the campus, sent to the attention of the DSO, where the non-immigrant student is applying.
Unless the primary language of the non-immigrant student is English, and the College can confirm, then the student is not required to take the TOEFL test.
There is no limited amount of times a student can take a test. TOEFL test scores are valid for two (2) years after the test date. The official scores become part of the permanent student record once the student has enrolled with the College.
