Abstract


In this era of globalization the role of English as an international language is becoming more and more important. Moreover, English language will be more highly needed when AFTA, APEC, and AEC are implemented in the near future. It is needed for education, commerce, industry, career development, employment opportunity, human resource development, etc.  For this purpose, Syiah Kuala University expects its students to have good command of English when they graduate in hope that they will be able to compete not only at national level, but also at international level when they work. One way to motivate the students to prepare themselves with English proficiency is through the implementation of TOEF score which was made as one of the requirements for the students who want to register for script examination. This paper then wants to discuss the implementation of TOEFL score as a requirement for script examination, some problems and possible solutions to the problems.
