The TOEFL will also be required of Permanent Resident immigrants who have not attended an English-speaking educational institution for at least two years full-time. This requirement may be waived if the applicant has attended an English-speaking college or university in the United States for a period of at least two academic years full-time.
A score of at least 550 on the paper-based exam or at least 213 on the computer-based exam is required. Information about the TOEFL may be obtained from the TOEFL Program, Box 899, Princeton, NJ, 08540 USA. www.ets.org/toefl/
