English Language Requirement Form
All health care workers (native and non-native US English speakers alike) are expected to use
clear communication skills in the workplace. Students whose native language is not U.S. English
are expected to demonstrate "near native" US English language abilities. To confirm this ability, all
students entering a Health and Wellness program are required to meet the English language
requirement.
All students should submit this form to the Admissions, Registration, and Records office to verify
how they meet the English language requirement.

2. I have attended school outside the United States.
3. My first language is not U.S. English.
