In response to the outbreak of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), the Chinese government has closed TOEFL, IELTS and PTE testing sites until at least early March.  

To accommodate affected students, UB will temporarily accept the Duolingo English Test (DET) for the purposes of meeting English language proficiency requirements for admission to all UB degree programs for summer 2020, fall 2020 and spring 2021. The DET is fully online and is not impacted by the closure of test sites.
