Evidence of English-language proficiency for academic purposes for students whose native language is not English and who want to begin their course work for their degree upon arrival. The following assessments are accepted by Gannon for this purpose: Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) scores of 550 (paper test), 213 (computer test) or 79(iBT); ELS Language Center level 112, or a minimum IELTS band score of 6.5 in lieu of TOEFL. Students whose native language is not English and who do not submit evidence of a minimal proficiency in English will be tested for proficiency upon arrival and placed, if necessary, into Gannon’s on-campus English-as-a-Second Language (ESL) program.
Submit the affidavit of support form which is required for verification of financial resources in order to issue the I-20. For more information click Affidavit of Support Form requirements. Gannon University will accept the following for financial proof:
If the documentation provided is not in the student’s name, it must be accompanied by an original signed letter from the account holder or employee promising to support you financially and verifying that the documented funds are allocated for that purpose.
Photocopies are not acceptable forms of financial proof. The Admissions Office must retain originals in your file.
The International Transfer Application is required of all international students who are transferring to Gannon from another college, university, or ESL center in the United States.
Applicants for the Master of Science in Community Counseling must submit a 250 word essay explaining why they chose the Community Counseling program and what they intend to do with the degree; complete an interview with the director of the program. A phone interview may be scheduled by calling Dr. David Tobin at (814)871-7537.

All transcripts, credentials, and documents become the property of Gannon University and cannot be returned or forwarded to a third party.
If you are coming from an English-speaking country (see list below), you will probably not need to take ESL courses.
If English is not your native language, you will need to take a test to measure your English language ability.
You can take the test in your own country or you can take the test at Gannon when you arrive.
Depending on the result of your test, you will either be placed into one of the levels of ESL classes or if your results are high enough, you will not have to take ESL classes at all.
We will accept results from these tests (if your score is less than the number shown you will need to take English As A Second Language courses):
You must show us a transcript that lists the highest level of English you have taken and your grades at that level and a letter of recommendation by the program director.
Gannon University offers ESL as a service to students who need such training, and we do this at a cost that is much less than tuition.
That is why awards and scholarships intended for your degree work do not apply to ESL training.
