TOEFL Waiver Request Letter Sample

Tips For Sample TOEFL Waiver Request LetterDear Sir/Madam,


Ref.: Application To the XYZ program

I request the admissions committee to consider the following factors while considering my request for TOEFL (Test of English As Foreign Language) Waiver

  1. My entire education (primary school, secondary school, undergraduation) has been from English speaking institutions – The medium of instruction has been strictly English
  2. My work experience has been with publicly listed corporations and in cutting edge technology areas where English is the official working language.

I have therefore taken the liberty of applying to the ********** program without a TOEFL score. I would request you to kindly accept my request . Alternatively, please let me know in case the waiver is not granted.

    • Greetings Joel,

      From what we understand, you are an international applicant to an educational program in the United States or A European Union Nation.
      Typically the universities in the US grant such waivers and the ones in EU usually insist on either TOEFL or IELTS regardless of prior language media and background.

      If all your earlier education has been via the English medium, you may request a TOEFL waiver. Work experience in Multinationals (US or British origin especially) is a definite plus too.

      Hope this answers your question.Pl. feel free to write back for further clarifications..
