                                school outside the United States or 
                                Canada (both nationals of the United 
                                States and others) taking the

                                score in the year preceding the year 
                                for which a student is seeking a loan 
                                under part B of title IV; or
                                    ``(II) the institution has a 
                                clinical training program that was 
                                approved by a State as of January 1, 
                                1992; or
                            ``(ii) in the case of a veterinary school 
                        located outside the United States that does not 
                        meet the requirements of section 101(a)(4), the 
                        institution's students complete their clinical
