Maryville College has welcomed international undergraduate students since the mid-1800s and 1884 was the year our first international student was awarded a Maryville College degree. We look forward to getting to know you, no matter where you come from!
Typically, Maryville College international students have completed the following basic coursework with good grades prior to admission to Maryville College:
International students with or without English proficiency may apply to Maryville College.
We do not require SAT, ACT, TOEFL, IELTS, EIKEN/STEP, PTE Academic or other standardized tests. However, the English proficiency tests (TOEFL, IELTS, EIKEN/STEP, PTE Academic) are recommended, to help us and to help you know your language ability.
If you do not have English proficiency test scores, or your scores are lower than required, you can still apply for conditional admission. You will be tested upon arrival at Maryville College and placed into appropriate classes depending on your scores here. Students who pass the proficiency exam can begin taking college-level courses and students who need more English training will be enrolled in the Intensive English (ESL) program. You may get college credit for your ESL studies (toward your degree at Maryville College).
Scores required for unconditional admission:
TOEFL IBT score of 74 (with no sub score below 18) or CBT score of 200 or paper-based score above 525 combined with demonstrated competency in essay writing
IELTS band score of 6.0 or higher
EIKEN (Step) score of Grade Pre-1
PTE Academic score of 50
Maryville College awards Bachelor’s degrees (B.A., B.S. and B.M.) in over 35 areas, including business, international business, biology, chemistry, biochemistry, computer science, engineering, environmental studies, psychology, literature, sociology, and many others.
We do not offer graduate programs at the masters or doctors level. Maryville College is a liberal arts college, which means students study a wide range of courses both within and in addition to their major subject area.
