No advance notice is necessary for this walk-in placement test that is free of charge. Students should arrive 15 minutes prior to the test to complete paperwork.  Please be on time.

The test consists of four parts: a multiple-choice grammar test, a multiple-choice listening comprehension test, a one-page reading selection with 5 short-answer questions, and a written summary of the reading selection.  It takes approximately 2 hours and 30 minutes to complete the test.  It is in pencil-and-paper format, and there is no practice test on the web to access.  There is at least one test date per month with extra dates added before the semester begins.
