Graduates in Cap and GownApart from visa issues, one major reason why international students find it less attractive to apply for admission into universities in America is because of their admission requirements.

Most universities in US require international students to provide GRE, TOEFL or IELTS scores to be able to be considered for admission. In most cases, they require prospective students to provide very high scores. This has made many people prefer going to the UK for further studies.

However, we have tried to identify few universities in America that don’t require international students to have GRE, TOEFL or IELTS to be considered for admission both in undergraduate and post graduate level. Some of these universities have even gone further by listing the countries that have been exempted from providing TOEFL or IELTS scores.

The only requirement is that internationals students seeking admission to these universities must be from English speaking countries and should be able to prove that they have been taught in English Language either in College or at University level. Their most recent results or transcripts should be able to prove this.

So many countries were exempted including countries in Africa which they recognise as English speaking countries such as Nigeria, Ghana , Zimbabwe etc.

Besides, the universities that will be discussed briefly below are also rated as some of the EASIEST universities to get admission into in America. Generally, they are not very strict about their admission requirements and procedures. Their requirements are quite low when compared to other universities in America but that doesn’t mean that they are not good universities. They are quite nice too.

 

Bellevue University
