iMPA TOEFL Requirements

All international applicants must possess exceptional English skills to be considered for the iMPA program. Your official scores for either the Internet-based TOEFL or IELTS must be on your UT record prior to the application deadline (even if you were allowed to waive the TOEFL or IELTS for admission to UT Austin).

Our preferred minimum for the TOEFL is 105 overall, with a minimum of 24 for each individual section, or minimum band scores of 7.5 for the IELTS. If your previously-submitted test scores do not accurately reflect your current English proficiency, we strongly recommend that you retake the test and increase your scores.

For more information on TOEFL scores and waivers, please visit the GIAC website.
