dc.description.abstract English, verbal vs. non-verbal content of courses taken and The present study was conducted to find the relationship between TOEFL scores and the graduate CPA's of the foreign students with Arabic as their native language. The results of the study indicated non-significant correlations for all 116 students, for males and females and for students having departmental majors in areas of education and sciences. A significant negative correlation was found for business majors. The factors responsible for non-significant or negative correlation between TOEFL scores and the CPA's seem to be restriction of range for graduate CPA's, difference between beginning and acquired language proficiency in the small number of individuals involved. In view of the above results, the TOEFL does not seem to be a good predictor of academic success for foreign students with Arabic as native language. It should be replaced or, supplemented with some other criteria of academic success at American colleges and universities.
