Exception to the Language Proficiency Requirement
Evidence of proficiency other than those listed above may be determined as follows:
CSC reserves the right to require additional testing of any incoming student’s English skills. If it is determined that additional English studies are necessary, you may be required to take the appropriate intensive English program courses prior to, or concurrent with, enrolling in CSC academic programs. Refusal to do so, or failure to successfully complete it, may result in dismissal from CSC.
Applicants who do not meet any of the CSC English proficiency requirements, but who are otherwise academically qualified, may be considered for conditional acceptance as degree-seeking students if they enroll in a recognized intensive English language program. Upon satisfactory completion of the program, and assuming all other admission requirements are met, they will be considered eligible for full admission as degree-seeking students to the College.
Any student admitted conditionally as an undergraduate has a maximum of 12 consecutive months to pass the language requirement. Summer classes may be required.
