U.S. citizens and Permanent Residents do not need to submit a TOEFL or IELTS score. A waiver of the TOEFL or IELTS is automatically granted (no request needed) if you are an international applicant and have earned an undergraduate degree in a country where the official language is English (not just an English-speaking institution or a country where English is spoken) (see country list here).
In order to request a TOEFL or IELTS waiver you must have submitted a Texas MBA application AND meet one of the following conditions:
- 1) You have lived and worked full-time in the U.S. or in a country where English is the official language for at least two of the past four years (see country list here).
- 2) You hold a masters degree from a college or university located in the U.S. or from a country where English is the official language (see country list here).
- 3) You were educated solely in English for your undergraduate and/or prior graduate degree.
If you do not meet any of these conditions, you are required to submit the TOEFL exam without exception. If you meet the conditions above, please check the appropriate box requesting the waiver in the test score section of your application. You will receive a confirmation of your waiver decision within two weeks of submitting your application.
