Admissions Testing

The Scholastic Assessment Test (SAT) is required of freshman applicants. The SAT is administered several times a year in cities around the world. Registration is made by contacting the College Board SAT Program, Box 6200, Princeton, NJ 08540-6200; telephone (609) 771-7600 or at their website - see link to the right.

The UMass Dartmouth College Board Code Number is 3786.

Your test results will be reported directly to the University. The SAT should be taken no later than March for admission in September, and no later than October for admission in January.

SAT results are not required for:

  1. Applicants who have completed secondary school more than three years ago, or
  2. Those who have completed 30 or more transferable university credits

The Graduate Record Examination (GRE), Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT), and the Miller Analogies Test (MAT) are required for graduate study.  At UMass Dartmouth, different graduate programs have different testing requirements, so please refer to your program information.

If English is not your first language, you must demonstrate your ability to speak English by submitting the results of the TOEFL. Applicants should use the UMass Dartmouth Code number 3786.   The University must receive the official scores; photocopies or fax copies are not acceptable.

The TOEFL requirement is waived only for students who have attended schools where the primary language of instruction is English, or for those who have successfully completed secondary school or college/university in the United States. You will need to send us documentation if that is the case.

UMass Dartmouth does not offer an intensive program in English as a second language, although a number of institutions in our region do offer such programs. It is recommended that students who lack the necessary proficiency in English enroll in an intensive English program, complete it successfully, then apply for admission to UMass Dartmouth.
