English Language Proficiency Tests
English language proficiency tests are required of any student seeking to study in the United States who was educated in a country where English was not a national language or the language of instruction. There are currently two commonly used English proficiency tests.
Advanced Placement International English Language (APIEL) is an increasingly used and accepted assessment of English language proficiency. It follows the study and examination format of other Advanced Placement programs but is designed specifically for non-native speakers of English.
Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) is a widely used and recognized measure of basic English language proficiency for non-native speakers. The TOEFL was developed by ETS and follows a standardized test format.
