 nonnative speakers who hold degrees or diplomas from postsecondary institutions in English-speaking countries (e.g., the United States, Canada, England, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand)

 nonnative speakers who have successfully completed at least a two-year course of study in which English was the language of instruction

 transfer students from institutions in the United States or Canada whose academic course work was favorably evaluated in relation to its demands and duration.
