International students who meet all admission requirements except for the English proficiency requirement may be admitted to UT with conditional admission.

You will begin a degree program when you attain the required score on the institutional TOEFL, which is offered at no additional cost at the end of each ELI session, or when you complete ELI’s highest level and request a letter of recommendation from ELI.
