Placement and Arrival

English Language Learners’ Institute


  • Placement

    Students are placed at the appropriate level of ASU’s English Language Learners’ Institute by doing ONE of these things:

    • Submitting an official test score from the TOEFL, IELTS or TOEIC exam with your admission packet
    • Taking a placement exam upon your arrival in San Angelo  

    If you take a placement exam after you arrive, or wish to retest once you get to ASU, the English Language Learners’ Institute will administer those tests. Your highest test score will be used to determine your level and coursework.

    Based on the standardized test you complete, we use this scale to place you at the appropriate level:

     Placement Test Levels
      Level 4 Level 5 Level 6
    CEFR B1 B1 B2
    PBT 433-462 463-496 497-547
    TOEFL iBT 40-49 50-59 60-68
    TOEFL ITP 400-449 450-499 500 or Higher
    IELTS 4-4.5 4.5-5 5.5
    TOEIC* 500-599 600-699 700 or Higher
    Duolingo 60-74 75-84 85-95
  • Arrivals

    New students are required to attend ELLI and immigration orientations. Arrival times are published in advance of new terms.

    Students who are late for orientation and testing (if necessary) will be fined $100 as this creates additional processing time.
