International Student Requirements
- Proof of English Proficiency
All applicants whose first language is not English and who have not earned an academic degree in the U.S. must submit proof of English proficiency. This graduate entry requirement to Merrimack College can be demonstrated in any of the following ways:
- A minimum TOEFL score of 84 on the internet-based test-iBT (with a minimum of 21 on the writing subset)
- A minimum IELTS score of 6.5 with no band below 6.0
- A minimum PTE Academic score of 56
- A minimum GTEC CBT score of 1200
Students whose TOEFL iBT score is at least 55 but lower than 84 can still enter, but will have a longer course of study by enrolling in the pre-master’s program.
- Copy of Passport
- Certificate of Finances
The form must be completed by all students who are not U.S. citizens or permanent residents who intend to be enrolled full-time at Merrimack College. The International Declaration of Finances form must be accompanied by current (no older than nine months) proof of funding for the first year of studies in the form of a notarized bank letter. The total costs that must be documented can be found on the form.
Verification of Credentials
It is the policy of the Office of Graduate Studies to verify all credentials submitted in support of an application. All transcripts, recommendations, publications, standardized test scores, and supplemental materials must be traceable to their source in order to confirm their authenticity. Written materials submitted by an applicant may be subject to review for the purpose of identifying plagiarism.
