ALI offers two possible waivers for admission to SF State non-impacted undergraduate programs. Either waiver will meet the SF State English proficiency requirements.

Waiver One

You must be placed in and successfully complete the ALI advanced-intermediate level (46) and get the required score on the ALI English proficiency test, which is given twice each semester.


Waiver Two

You must successfully complete the ALI advanced level (48) or higher. There is no English proficiency score required for Waiver Two.


Note: You do not need to complete the highest ALI level to receive a TOEFL waiver.
