English Language Competency Requirements for Professional Licensee Applications

Proving your English language competency (ELC) is required for those applying as a professional member, licensee, or professional licensee. If you have not completed an undergraduate degree where the content of the program was taught in English, you must be able to demonstrate your competency in English.

The Board of Examiners (BOE) will review your work experience record and application information for the demonstration of meeting the ELC requirement.

The BOE may request additional information to prove your ELC if it has been determined that you have not satisfied this requirement. This will be communicated to you by the BOE and may include a requirement to pass the TOEFL test.
