As a global leader in education, UMass Lowell is proud to have a diverse faculty, staff and student population. Whether you plan to study on campus or online, we hope you will consider joining — and enriching — our inclusive community.
In addition to meeting standard graduate admissions requirements, you must submit proof of English language proficiency (Duolingo, TOEFL or IELTS) if English is not the primary language in your home country. If World Education Services (WES) verification of your undergraduate transcript is required (this varies by school and program, check with Graduate Admissions), you will need to pay WES a fee for this service.
In addition to meeting our standard admissions requirements, you must provide proof that you have completed a high school (secondary school) education. UMass Lowell partners with World Education Services (WES) to confirm that your secondary school education meets our academic requirements. You will need to pay WES a fee for this service.
Many international students have been able to apply credits previously earned at other colleges or universities outside the U.S. towards their UMass Lowell certificate or degree program. Please visit World Education Services and follow the steps for getting your transcript(s) evaluated.
You must also provide UMass Lowell with course descriptions for any college-level courses you would like to transfer.
On the WES website, be sure to designate the University of Massachusetts Lowell as the educational Institution to which you would like WES to send your Credential Evaluation Report. Please provide them with this address:
Once completed, WES will mail a copy of your evaluation to you, and to UMass Lowell.
