TOEFL Policy (for Admission to University of Massachusetts Boston)
Applicants from countries where English is not the primary language are required to take the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) as part of the University of Massachusetts admissions process. In addition, applicants who have a bachelor’s degree from a country outside of the U.S. may need to take the TOEFL. The TOEFL will also be required of Permanent Resident immigrants who have not attended an English-speaking educational institution for at least two years full-time. This requirement may be waived if the applicant has attended an English-speaking college or university in the United States for a period of at least two academic years full-time.
A score of at least 550 on the paper-based exam or at least 213 on the computer-based exam is required. Information about the TOEFL may be obtained from the TOEFL Program, Box 899, Princeton, NJ, 08540 USA. www.ets.org/toefl/
