English Proficiency: Platt College does not offer English as a Second Language (ESL) programs or classes, so we want to ensure that the applicant’s level of English proficiency will allow them to succeed in an accelerated BSN program. If English is not the applicant’s native language, a Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) with the minimum required score may need to be submitted prior to taking the TEAS test. 

Who is exempt from the TOEFL requirement?

Applicants who have studied in the United States for 3 or more years of high school by the time you apply do not need to submit a TOEFL.  This means the applicant either completed high school in the US or has completed grades 9, 10, 11 and is currently completing grade 12 in the US.

Applicants who have completed a post-secondary degree from an accredited US agency, college, or university.

Applicants whose first language is English and who have earned the equivalent of a high school diploma from a country where English is the official language. View the list of Approved Native English-Speaking Countries based on reporting from the CIA’s World Factbook.

Platt College reserves the right to require a Test of English Language Proficiency in all circumstances.

Platt College's TOEFL code is 8791.

Acceptable English Proficiency Scores/TOEFL (minimum score):

80 internet-based (iBT)

550 paper-based (PBT)
