International applicants may be required to provide proof of English proficiency via TOEFL or IELTS. The exam results must be dated within 2 years from your proposed date of admission and remain valid upon entering the term you applied for. For example, fall 2007 begins in August 2007; therefore, your exam results must be valid until August 2007.
Information and arrangements to take the exam can be made by contacting the Educational Testing Service at www.ets.org.
It is strongly recommended to make test arrangements early in the year so sufficient time can be allowed for the results to be reported before our application deadline.
The State University of New York at Buffalo has a minimum TOEFL score requirement of 550 (paper-based) or 79 (internet-based). On IELTS, UB requires an overall score of 6.5 with no band below 6.0
Effective immediately, in addition to TOEFL and IELTS, UB will begin accepting Pearson Test of English Academic (PTE Academic) scores to satisfy our institution’s English language proficiency requirement for graduate admission consideration of non-native speakers of English.
A minimum PTE Academic score of 55 will be required with no individual section sub-score below 50.
