In-Person Placement

The ELP offers in-person placement testing for students who have not submitted an IELTS score. This testing is offered during orientation, the week before classes begin for the semester. Students will be placed in ELP classes based on ELP placement tests, which may include an oral interview, a writing test, standardized tests and/or other additional in-person testing.


Placement Grievances

Students who feel they have been misplaced may grieve their placement by filling out and submitting a Complaint/Grievance Form according to the procedure outlined in the ELP Student Handbook. All placement grievances must be submitted by the Thursday of the first week of classes.
