Strong language skills are important for any student to be successful at the University of Minnesota, and we are committed to supporting students as they develop their skills while at the UMN.
Students with a low English test score may be required to take an English test when they arrive on campus. They may also be required to take a supportive English class during their first semester, in addition to their other coursework.
If you have an AZ hold on your student record please contact the Minnesota English Language Program for advising on how to remove the hold before orientation. If you plan to take the MN Battery Test, you should arrive by the mandatory arrival date.
For information about minimum test scores, how to send your scores to the UMN, and the English as a Second Language course requirements, go to z.umn.edu/intlenglishreq.
