English Language Exam Exceptions
There are two possibilities for an English Language exam exception: either an Exemption or a Program Waiver.
Applicants are granted an exemption from the English Language Exam requirement if you complete a Bachelor's or Master's degree, or one year or more of studies in a degree program, in English in the U.S. or one of these exempted countries. In addition, an exemption is granted if you complete a degree in a non-exempt country where the medium of instruction in your program is in English.
