English Language Proficiency Tests

One of the ways to meet the English language proficiency (ELP) requirement for your program is by successfully completing an ELP test. ELP test results must include evidence of competencies in reading, writing, listening, and speaking in English. ELP test results must be verifiable and valid up until your program start date. Results that are more than two years old will not be accepted.

Review the program requirements for your program to see which ELP tests are accepted. Then use the links in the chart below to find more information about taking an ELP test and acceptable ways to submit test results.
