Minimum Requirements to Apply

If English is your second language, send your original/official or certified copy of TOEFL / IELTS exam report or have TOEFL / IELTS send an official report directly to Goshen College. The institutional code number of Goshen College is 1251.

Canadian students are not required to submit SAT or ACT test scores for admission. TOEFL scores are required if English is not the applicant’s first language.

Though not required, it is recommended that Canadian students submit SAT I scores with their application for admission. The SAT exam is given in locations around the world several times a year. Students may obtain details of when the exam is administered and how to apply by contacting the nearest American Embassy or Consulate. Students should start planning a year in advance of the time they plan to begin studies at Goshen College to take the SAT I exam and to prepare the other required documents for admission and financial aid consideration. SAT test scores may fulfill athletic eligibility so test scores are recommended for athletes.

Students not meeting full admission standards are still encouraged to apply for admission. Goshen College takes a holistic approach to admission decisions and will consider the merit of each applicants’ academic record on an individual basis. Additional materials may be requested so that we can learn as much as we need to make our admission decision.

Students with diagnosed learning disabilities, who are otherwise qualified for admission to Goshen College, must provide documentation of their specific learning differences to the director of the Academic Success Center in order to receive reasonable accommodation.
