International Student Admission Requirements

To apply to Naropa University as an international applicant, applicants must submit all of the undergraduate admissions requirements or graduate admissions requirements.

In addition to these general admission requirements, international applicants must also complete the following international applicant admissions requirements:

English Proficiency Testing

International applicants must document their English language proficiency by submitting scores for the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) or the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) tests. Applicants must earn the following required scores:


  • Internet test (iBT): 80 or higher
  • Computer test (cBT): 213 or higher
  • Paper test (pBT): 550 or higher


  • 6.5 or higher

Exceptions are granted for applicants from countries where English is one of the official national languages, or when English was the primary language of their previous schooling.

Non-U.S. Education Records

Undergraduate and graduate applicants must submit all required academic records from non-U.S. schools to a NACES-recognized agency for evaluation, regardless of country citizenship. Only after the transcript evaluations have been received and reviewed by the Office of Admissions will Naropa consider an offer of full acceptance, as well as issue the required documents to obtain your student visa.
