ESOL/Non-Native English exams

The ESOL exam is a timed exam designed to help non-native English speaking students select appropriate English classes. This exam allows students 45 minutes to complete 75 multiple choice questions. Students will need to fill out scanforms with personal information prior to the test beginning, and scores are generally available within 15-20 minutes after the test is complete.

These exams are available by appointment only. Please email, call, or stop by for an appointment.
