Not all UMass International Study programs require English proficiency but many do. Please check the program description for information regarding English language requirements.
For Summer College
International students may provide an internet-based TOEFL (iBT) or computer-based TOEFL scores and request ETS to send their scores to Summercollege@provost.umass.edu.
We strongly recommend that students have at least a minimum 80 or higher on the iBT TOEFL.
Applicants who have not taken the TOEFL will be asked to participate in an in-person interview or on-line interview. China-based candidates can arrange for a Video recorded interview with Initialview. Candidates from other countries will have to arrange for an on-line interview conducted over Skype by contacting Summercollege@provost.umass.edu.
Depending on the results of their language assessment students may be required to participate in a one-week language prep workshop prior to the start of their two week Intensive.
For all other offerings please check the appropriate website.
