Want to Improve Your English?

If you want to improve your English skills before starting classes, the Minnesota English Language Program offers an Intensive English Language Program during the summer.

They also offer American English Courses during the school year for credit.

To learn more, visit their website or email esl@umn.edu.

If you have not asked your testing agency to send your official TOEFL, IELTS, or MELAB scores to the University of Minnesota, you can ask your testing agency to send your scores directly to the Office of Admissions.

We also recommend that you bring your official TOEFL, IELTS, or MELAB scores when you arrive on campus.

Students without a valid English test score, or a score below the minimum score required by the University, may be required to take an English test on arrival. If so, you will have an AZ hold on your student record instructing you to go the Minnesota English Language Program when you arrive. Please choose an arrival date, that will allow enough time to take the test .

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.
