English Language Requirements

You only need to take one of these language tests:

  • Minimum required score:


    The IELTS – or the International English Language Test System – tests your English-language abilities (writing, listening, speaking, and reading) on a scale of 1.00–9.00. The minimum IELTS score requirement refers to which Overall Band Score you received, which is your combined average score. Read more about IELTS.

  • Minimum required score:


    The TOEFL – or Test Of English as a Foreign Language – offers an internet-based test (iBT). The final, overall iBT score ranges between 0 and 120, and includes a scaled average from the four components (reading, listening, speaking, and writing). Read more about TOEFL (iBT).

Academic Requirements

While full-time post-baccalaureate work experience is not required for admission to Purdue’s MS(F) program, many MS(F) students do enter the program with one or more years of relevant experience. The median work experience for recent MS(F) classes is two years, but about half of our program’s students have less than one year of full-time experience. However, those coming straight from an undergraduate program often have significant co-opportunity or internship experiences. Applicants to the MS(F) program may submit the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) in lieu of the GMAT.
