SVSU understands that the COVID-19 virus has caused traditional TOEFL and IELTS test centers to be closed, making it harder for our students to take the tests we normally require for admission.
For Winter and Fall 2021 admissions review, SVSU will continue to accept scores from iTEP's Academic Plus or the TOEFL iBT Special At Home Edition. SVSU reserves the right to require additional testing from any students admitted based on these scores. Additional placement testing will be provided during our Fall Orientation.
Scores needed to be eligible for each level of admission:
|iTEP Academic Plus Scores|
|English Language Program||2.4-3.5|
|Undergraduate||3.6 or above|
There are no minimum English language proficiency requirements for admission to the ELP when Levels 1 and 2 are offered. However, Levels 1 and 2 are not offered every semester.
When Levels 1 and 2 are not offered, students applying to be admitted to the ELP must submit evidence of English language proficiency.
