Advice About English Proficiency
If English is not your primary language, plan to pass the TOEFL, or its equivalent, before you come to the College of Music. Proficiency in English (for example: TOEFL minimum: 213 cbt or 79 ibt)
UNT offers an excellent language institute for learning English, IELI (Intensive English Language Institute). Students who are enrolled in IELI will not begin music degree studies until they complete the language program or pass the TOEFL. Read more about this program.
