English Language Proficiency Test (ALP/ESL) – for ESL (English as a Second Language) Students

International students or students for whom English is not their native language may be required to take the Levels of English Proficiency Test (LOEP). This test measures proficiency in reading, writing, and listening and may place students in the American Language Program (ALP). Students who complete the ALP or who have tested out of the program through the LOEP are then required to take the mathematics portion of the Basic Skills Placement Test. Under specific conditions, a student may have the LOEP and/or mathematics test requirement waived. Further information about waivers, the LOEP, and the ALP is available at the Office of Testing Services, Room S-127. There is no fee for this examination.
