Initiating Authority:

Academic Affairs

Summary Of Policy Or Policy Change:

This policy is being revised to align with KBOR policy regarding minimum score requirements for spoken English competency for faculty and graduate assistants. In addition, minor updates were made to accurately reflect KBOR policy language and to comply with the University's standard policy format.

The following specific changes were made:

  • The minimum score on the speaking section of the Test of English as a Foreign Language internet Based Test (TOEFL iBT) was changed from 23 to 22.
  • Initiating authority was added.
  • The quote from KBOR policy at the beginning of the policy was updated to match the current KBOR language.
  • Minor changes to formatting were updated and a revisions section was added.

Reason Or Need For Policy / Summary Of Changes Made To Existing Policy:

Policy 3.09 sets forth the English Language Proficiency requirements for the University's faculty and graduate assistants. Since approximately 2012, Policy 3.09 has required a minimum score of 23 on the spoken section of the TOEFL iBT. The KBOR Policy Manual did not include a minimum score for the spoken section of the TOEFL iBT until approximately 2021, and when it was added, KBOR set the minimum at 22. The current revisions to Policy 3.09 were made to align with the minimum score set by KBOR for the spoken section of the TOEFL iBT.

We are moving these limited revisions forward quickly so that the minimum TOEFL score in the Graduate Catalog can be updated in February 2024.
