Conditionally Admitted Students

Important Information for Conditionally Admitted Students

Congratulations on being conditionally admitted to the University of Maine!  The information on this page is intended to help you understand what conditional admission means and how you can successfully progress from being conditionally admitted to fully enrolling in your academic program. You can confirm your enrollment here.

What’s Next?

Students must score a 79 on the TOEFL or 6.5 on the IELTS exam to meet our language requirement. If you retake the TOEFL or IELTS exam and achieve the required score after you are conditionally admitted, arrange to have your new scores sent to the University of Maine. When we receive the new scores, you will be admitted into your regular academic program and issued new immigration documents.


When you arrive to UMaine, you will be tested for English Proficiency at the Intensive English Institute (IEI). A suitable program of English Language Study will be arranged based on the results of the testing.

As a conditionally admitted student, you will be placed in the Core Intensive English Program or the Bridge Program.

Students who score below a 50 on the TOEFL exam or a 5.0 on the IELTS exam will be placed in the Core Intensive English Program.

Enrolling in Your Degree Program

Conditionally admitted students study at the IEI until they meet one of the following criteria:

  • achieve a TOEFL score of 79 or score a 6.5 or higher on the IELTS exam
  • are granted permission from the Director of the IEI to fully enroll in their academic program
