English Proficiency Requirements for the University of Kansas

The links below list the requirements for demonstrating English language proficiency at the University of Kansas.  One document shows the requirements for new undergraduates and the other is for new graduate students.

English proficiency requirements must be met by all new international students, and by any domestic students (US citizen or US permanent residents) whose first language is not English.

If you have questions, please call the Applied English Center at 785-864-4606.

Thank you.
