English Proficiency

Rider University requires that non-native English speakers submit evidence of English language proficiency in the form of the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) or the International English Language Testing System (IELTS). Students who have attended high school in which English is the medium of instruction may have this requirement waived. For freshman students, the SAT I exam will then be required. For more information, e-mail the admissions office. Please note that Rider does not offer English as a Second Language (ESL) coursework.
