The requirements for acceptance differ in each school. In case you did not complete your high school studies at an English speaking country you will have to pass an English proficiency test, such as TOEFL. You should score higher than 550 in TOEFL or its equivalents. Also, most schools will take under consideration your high school grades especially in math and English. High SAT (or another standardized test) scores are also a plus, but most colleges accept applicants without them. However, the Israeli psychometric test or the SAT is a must at Jerusalem's Hebrew University, and applicants are required to submit their scores in such tests.
