If you are a native speaker, your department must complete the Certification Form for you and forward it to the Office of the Provost.

If you are a non-native speaker with proof of English fluency (i.e., a 27/30 on the speaking section of the TOEFL iBT), you must request that the ELP completes a ITA Fluency Certificate Request on your behalf.
