March ’18 – Florida Memorial University Accepts DynEd Certification and Coursework as a Measure of English Proficiency
San Jose, CA. March 13, 2018 – DynEd International, Inc. today announced that Florida Memorial University (FMU) in Miami Gardens, Florida, has joined DynEd’s expanding group of higher-level institutions who now accept DynEd Certification and coursework as proof of English proficiency required for enrollment. As of March 1, 2018, international applicants to FMU whose English skills have been certified by DynEd international will satisfy the English language proficiency requirement for acceptance into the University.
DynEd’s certification skill levels are fully aligned to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR), the most accepted global language framework. “Unlike most certification programs, the accuracy of DynEd CEFR Certificates is not based solely on a single test. DynEd’s courses and tests measure progress and mastery over time, especially the listening and speaking skills so important for understanding college and university lectures,” says Ian Adam, DynEd’s President and Chief Executive Officer.
To achieve each Certification level, students must spend time studying the courseware and pass six Mastery Tests, as well as DynEd’s CEFR Exit Test. “This provides admissions officers an extra level of confidence that the international learner has mastered the English skills necessary to succeed from enrollment, to active participation, to graduation,” says Adam.
Universities that accept DynEd Certification for their proficiency requirement also include Middle Tennessee State University, Lewis and Clark State College, and St. Thomas University.
Florida Memorial University is a private, coeducational, and Baptist-affiliated institution that has the distinction of being one of the oldest academic centers in the state, and the only Historically Black University in South Florida. Building upon the traditions of our past and harnessing the richness of the present, Florida Memorial University prepares our students, through innovation, collaboration and creativity, to assume leadership roles in a highly competitive, technology-driven, and increasingly global marketplace.
