LPU accepts the TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) or IELTS (International English Language Test). In those countries where English is the primary language, the applicant must submit an SAT or ACT score as documentation of English proficiency.

To meet this requirement, submit one of the following:

  • SAT: composite of 1010 or higher

An international transcript evaluation is a process used by employers, immigration office, or educational institutions to analyze an individual's academic record to determine the U.S. equivalency of their foreign credentials, credits, grades, and GPAs. It's recommended for College Admission, Licensing, USCIS RFE, and more.

The evaluation process typically involves verifying the authenticity of the transcripts, translating the document (if necessary), and analyzing the grades, coursework, degree obtained, and the accreditation status of the issuing institution to determine the equivalent level of education within the U.S. educational system.
