International Student Resources

International students gathering.

With nearly 5,000 international students from more than 100 different countries, you'll find that UB offers a warm and welcoming environment. We understand there are special resource needs and accommodations. We offer a variety of services to assist you.

Are you an international student and unable to take the IELTS, PTE or TOEFL?

If you are currently unable to take the IELTS, PTE or TOEFL tests because they are canceled due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19), the University at Buffalo will accept the Duolingo English Test (DET) for proof of English proficiency. This test can be taken online, in your own home. More information can be found on the Graduate School’s website.

The TOEFL iBT? Special Home Edition is a safe and convenient option for students who are unable to take the TOEFL iBT test at a test center due to public health concerns.
