**For the 2020-21 application cycle, we will be accepting DuoLingo testing in lieu of TOEFL or IELTS to accommodate students affected by COVID-19. We will continue accepting TOEFL and IELTS scores as well.**
- Pitzer requires the demonstration of English proficiency from students whose native language is not English.
- This must be done by:
- Submitting the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) IBT or ITP
- Or submitting the International English Language Testing System (IELTS)
- Or submitting the DuoLingo (DET)**
- Or submitting and being granted an English Language Test Waiver (Click here to find out more about the process)
- In order to be considered for admission, students must submit official scores or be granted a waiver. For students who submit testing, a minimum score of 100 IBT, or 100 ITP, or 7 IELTS, or 125 DET** is required.
- However, students who are qualified for admission to Pitzer in all ways except English proficiency are eligible for the International Scholars Program. Applicants must:
- Achieve at least a 70 IBT, or 70 ITP, or 6.5 IELTS, or 100 DET**.
- Or have submitted an English Language Test Waiver and been notified that they will be considered for admission through the International Scholars Program.

Pitzer does not currently accept alternate tests of English proficiency (such as Duolingo (DET), paper-based TOEFL, etc.), but they may be included in your English Language Test Waiver to support your request.
