Duolingo English Test
International students only: If your first language is not English and your secondary school curriculum has not been delivered in English for at least two years, we require you to submit an English proficiency exam score from the TOEFL, IELTS, Duolingo, or Cambridge C1/C2.
The Duolingo English Test is a language proficiency tool offering an English proficiency score, video interview, and writing sample in an accessible, efficient, and secure testing experience. Duolingo has free score sharing—please send your official scores to Dartmouth as soon as they become available to you.
Most successful applicants score above 100 on the TOEFL exam, above a 7 on IELTS, and above a 130 on Duolingo.
