English Language Proficiency

Georgia Tech is a lively and collaborative atmosphere, and it is imperative that students have the ability to contribute to classroom discussions and engage in the Georgia Tech community outside of the classroom.

While all international applicants must demonstrate English proficiency using a University System approved method, be aware that SAT or ACT exam scores will satisfy this requirement. If students opt to submit additional testing to demonstrate English Language proficiency, in addition to the USG-approved options, our office will accept the TOEFL Home Edition, the IELTS Indicator, and the Duolingo English Test.

Additionally, in support of their admission application, non-native English speakers can choose to submit a recorded, unscripted interview through a third-party provider such as InitialView or Vericant.
