Yes, it is possible to study in the USA without IELTS, given that you have completed your senior secondary education, graduated with English as the medium of instruction in the program, or have pursued studies in an English-speaking country for a particular duration. Further, some universities may also avail admission to those who don’t have IELTS or TOEFL if they take the university’s preparatory program known as the Intensive English Language Program (IELP), which equips international students with better proficiency in English.

IELTS becomes a barrier for many students because it might be challenging for non-native English speakers to pass. Many people are not keen on taking the IELTS more than once because doing so might be expensive.

Best Colleges to Attend in the USA Without IELTS

  1. University of Delaware (Alternate for IELTS: English Language for Internationals(ELI))
  2. Northwood University (Alternate for IELTS: EIKEN/ IB/ Cambridge English Test/ ELS/ PTE Academic)
  3. Rice University (Alternate for IELTS: Duolingo)
  4. University of Dayton (Alternate for IELTS: PTE/ Duolingo)
  5. State University of New York (Alternate for IELTS: PTE/ Duolingo/ Cambridge English Scale)The 
  6. University of New Orleans (UNO (Alternate for IELTS: English Language for Internationals(ELI))
  7. California State University (Alternate for IELTS: PTE)
  8. University of Colorado (Alternate for IELTS: Duolingo)
  9. University of Arkansas (Alternate for IELTS: PTE/ iTEP/ Cambridge Assessment English/ Duolingo)
  10. National Louis University (Alternate for IELTS: PTE)

Even though IELTS is essentially a requirement for studying in the USA, several colleges offer specific programs you can apply to without IELTS results. These universities include, among others, Northwood University, University of Dayton, University of North Texas, and California State University.

IELTS is not a prerequisite for a USA student visa for people who have finished an international baccalaureate or prior studies from an English-speaking nation.

You can study abroad in several well-known nations without taking the IELTS or TOEFL. These include, among others, Germany, the USA, Canada, the UK, Malaysia, and Australia.
