Important information specific to International Transfer Students

  • If English is not your first language and you have scored less than a 550 on the Critical Reading portion of the SAT I, you must take the TOEFL. Bucknell will consider any student who scores above a 600 on the paper-based TOEFL exam or above 100 points on the internet-based exam (iBT).
