Michigan English Language Assessment Battery (MELAB) test.

• TOEFL paper-based: Overall score of 580
• IELTS: Overall band score of 7.0
• MELAB: Total score of 85
Please be aware that where an English Proficiency Test is required, the application will not be assessed for admission without a test result that meets the program minimum.
