Considering the situation our world is in, we want to notify you of an update to our admission requirements here at Southern Utah University. 

 
We are now accepting the Duolingo test as proof of English proficiency. Duolingo is available around the world–wherever the internet can be accessed.  
 
It can be taken on laptops and personal devices and the cost of the exam is affordable.
 
● A score of 100 is the base for undergraduate admissions. 
● A score of 105 is the base for graduate admissions. 
 
We still accept TOEFL, IELTS and iTEP and have added Duolingo as a very convenient option that can be taken from your own home. iTEP and TOEFL have launched new test from home options. These also might be easier and more affordable than other alternatives. Please let us know if you have any questions.

Awardees typically have a 3.0 GPA. International Student Scholarships cannot be combined with other substantial SUU tuition scholarships. International Student Scholarships can be awarded to students interested in entering SUU’s ESL program but the scholarship will not be paid until the student begins full time undergraduate or graduate studies.

“Being brave does not mean that you didn’t have fear, but you overcome that fear.’ This is one of my favorite quotes. Before I came to SUU, I was not a person that was very brave and could pursue my own life. I used to follow what others did, because I did not have enough courage to make my own path. Since coming to SUU, I’ve become more brave than than I ever thought was possible. Thanks to SUU, I can explore and learn about the perspectives of others by meeting new people at SUU. Now, I’m ready to make my own path without hesitation!”
