Conditional Admission Checklist

We are able to offer conditional admission to undergraduates who are applying for a home government scholarship and need to improve their English language skills prior to beginning classes at University of Portland. Students seeking conditional admission must meet all application requirements, with the exception of an English language proficiency exam score.

Conditionally admitted students:

  • Must meet our minimum English language exam score requirement before they can earn full admission and begin classes at University of Portland. (University of Portland accepts a TOEFL iBT score of 71 or above, or an IELTS score of 6.5 or above)
  • Upon satisfying the English language exam score will be fully admitted and eligible to begin classes in the next available term.  

 If you are seeking conditional admission for a graduate level program, please email International Student Services at for eligibility information.
