U.S. citizenship or permanent immigrant status is required for admission to Mayo School of Health Sciences programs.
Applicants whose primary language is not English must submit results from the Test of English as a Foreign Language Internet-based test (TOEFL iBT). Scores from the speaking portion of the exam are given particular consideration in admission decisions. Learn more about the exam and register online at the Educational Testing Service. The Mayo School of Health Sciences school code for the TOEFL iBT is 5784.
Applicants who completed their education training outside the U.S. must have their educational transcripts translated (if they are not already in English) and evaluated for U.S. equivalency by an accredited credential evaluation service company prior to submission. Refer to the National Association of Credential Evaluation Services for a list of qualified companies. The applicant pays for the examination and credential evaluation services.
Fluency in written and spoken English is essential for success in the program and to ensure patient safety.
