International students interested in applying for college-awarded financial aid will be required to pass a Lehigh University Test of Presentation and Speech Skills (TOPSS) test upon arrival at Lehigh. The College will use the new internet-based TOEFL [iBT] as a screening tool for the awarding of financial aid to international students. In order to be considered, you must achieve a speaking section score of 28, and a listening section score of 20. All awards are contingent upon passing the Lehigh TOPSS test.
