Temporary Test Waiver Policies for Applicants Seeking to Begin Their Graduate Program in 2021

Due to the pandemic, we temporarily waived test requirements (GRE/GMAT/MTEL) for most graduate degree programs, and for most applicants, until September 1, 2021. We have also allowed international students to use Duolingo in place of TOEFL and IELTS tests.

UMass Lowell's academic leaders will meet on September 20, 2021 to discuss whether to continue the waiver and substitute test requirements for Fall II and Spring 2022 applicants.

Please note that not all Master's programs require test scores to be submitted and you may qualify to have the tests waived - learn more here.
