Applicants whose native language is not English and who have not earned a degree from an appropriately accredited institution where English is the principal language of instruction must receive a minimum score of 500 (530 for Masters degree, and 550 for Doctorate program applicants) on the paper-based Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL), or 61 on the iBT (71 on the iBT for Masters degree applicants, and 80 for Doctorate program applicants), or its equivalent.

Applicants applying with a foreign degree or wishing to transfer in credits earned at institutions located outside the United States must have their academic transcripts evaluated and certified by a National Association of Credential Evaluation Services, Inc. (NACES) member organization. Applicants will be assessed a fee by the certifying organization and should request that the report be sent directly to Taft University. Applicants transferring in a degree need to request a General Degree Evaluation sometimes called a Document by Document Evaluation. Applicants wishing to transfer in credits toward specific courses must request a Course-by-Course report.
