We’re proud to receive applications from candidates in more than 90 countries. If you’re an international candidate, we ask that you review the following before submitting your application.
TEST OF ENGLISH AS FOREIGN LANGUAGE (TOEFL) AND INTERNATIONAL ENGLISH LANGUAGE TESTING SYSTEM (IELTS)
For Full-Time Programs Round 3 applicants, our TOEFL and IELTS requirements have been waived. For other application cycles, our requirements are listed below:
All candidates who are not U.S. citizens or U.S. permanent residents must send a valid TOEFL or IELTS score to Kellogg. The score results from both tests are valid for two years. A score from either TOEFL or IELTS will fill this requirement.
Exemptions may be granted if one of the following criteria is met:
If you qualify for this exemption, you must provide the exact URL or documentation from your institution that states English was the only language of instruction. If you graduated from an Indian institution that does not explicitly state this, please provide the URL for the homepage of the school’s website.
The code for uploading TOEFL scores to the Kellogg Full-Time MBA Program is 1546.
Test takers submitting IELTS scores select the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University as a score recipient rather than entering a specific code.
