TOEFL Requirement Information

A TOEFL score is required if English is not your native language.

The TOEFL test (Test of English as a Foreign Language) measures English language proficiency in reading, listening and writing. The test is offered on computer in most regions of the world.

In areas where access to computer-based testing is limited, a paper-and-pencil version of the test is administered.

The TWE test (Test of Written English) is also required for everyone taking the paper-based test. Test takers are given 30 minutes to write a short essay on an assigned topic. The essay is evaluated on the test taker's ability to organize and support ideas, and to use standard written English. Special knowledge of the topic is not needed to write the essay.

The Montessori Institute of Milwaukee's Course for Teachers is a university level program of study conducted in English. Applicants who have English as a second language must demonstrate language proficiency at a minimum TOEFL internet-based score of 80 or a minimum TOEFL paper and pencil test score of 550. Unofficial TOEFL scores may be sent with other application materials. An official score report must be sent directly from the testing agency. Official TOEFL score reports cannot be more than two years old.

Montessori Institute of Milwaukee's institution code for reporting TOEFL results is 8542. Please include this code on your answer sheet when you sit for the test. If you have previously taken the test, please include the code on your Score Report Request Forms.
