If applicants have two continuous years of full-time, university-level study completed within the last five years, in a country where the official language is English, he or she can request an English proficiency waiver. Students who have studied at a school where the language of instruction is English, but the official language of the country is not English do not qualify for a waiver (e.g., study at the American University in Cairo, Egypt, does not qualify a student for the English proficiency waiver).
The English proficiency requirement can also be waived for individuals who have been in the US for three or more years working. For more information, please visit the International Applicants website: International Graduate Students | Graduate Admissions | WPI
