Test Requirements Temporarily Waived for Graduate Applicants

With testing centers closed, Graduate Admissions at UMass Lowell is waiving GRE/GMAT/MTEL exam scores as an application requirement. The waiver policy will be in place through August 31, 2020, although we may extend this deadline further.

Your verbal, analytical and quantitative skills will be assessed based on your Statement of Purpose as well as by your performance in undergraduate courses you have taken in these areas.

If we are not confident that you have mastered the skill sets necessary to succeed in your program, we may delay your admission and ask you to take one of the qualifying exams when they are resumed.

We are requesting that international applicants complete the Duolingo Test of English, which can be taken remotely, in place of the TOEFL/IELTS exams. The threshold Duolingo score to meet UMass Lowell's English language requirement ranges from 105 to 115, depending on your program of interest.
