Applying to the ILC Program

To be considered for admission to the ILC program, you must complete the following four steps:

1. Submit your TOEFL or IELTS scores 

You must achieve the following minimum score to be considered for admission:

  • TOEFL (iBT): Overall of at least 50 with no sub-score below 12


  • IELTS: Overall of at least 4.0 with no sub-score below 3.5

If you do not have a TOEFL or an IELTS score, you may request a pre-assessment to be considered for admission to the ILC. You will then be formally assessed upon arrival at UAH and, if admitted, placed in the appropriate classes in the ILC program.

2. Submit your transcripts

Whether applying for the ILC or a degree program, nonnative speakers of English must submit certified, translated copies of their high school and/or college transcripts.

3. Submit any supporting financial documentation (if applicable)

International students who are on student visas (F1 status) must also complete and submit the UAH Affidavit of Financial Support

4. Submit a completed application

To apply online, follow these steps:

  • Go to UAH's Charger Status page and create an account
