TOEFL, IELTS, and Other International Examinations
Applicants whose first language is not English must submit official results of either the Test of English as a Foreign Language or the International English Language Testing System. Students living outside the United States whose first language is English (citizens of Australia, Canada, Great Britain, or the United States, for example) are required to take the SAT I or the ACT.
Test of English as a Foreign Language
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.

International English Language Testing System
Students are advised to take the Academic Module. Seven (7) is the minimum recommended score.
Other International Examinations
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.
