• International students whose first language or language of instruction is English should take the SAT or ACT.
• International students whose first language or language of instruction is not English are urged to take the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL). Kenyon also accepts results from these exams:
Kenyon does not have a minimum score requirement for the TOEFL. In general, however, preference will be given to students who score 100 or higher on the Internet-based test or 600 or better on the paper-based test.

Students are advised to take the Academic Module. Seven (7) is the minimum recommended score.
Students who complete university entrance examinations of other countries, such as the French Baccalaureate, the British A Levels, or the German Abitur, may receive up to three units of credit at Kenyon. The registrar, in consultation with faculty members, will evaluate official examination results submitted by enrolling students and determine the amount of credit and the departments to which credit will be allocated. Any credits so earned cannot be used to fulfill distribution or residency requirements. However, such credit can be cited in a petition for early graduation.
