Students who are granted conditional Missouri S&T academic admission are tested by the IEP faculty to assess their English language proficiency levels and placed either in full-time classes in the Intensive English Program or in full-time academic courses according to the results. English language placement testing is mandatory for all international students who have not satisfied Missouri S&T's English language proficiency requirements. Please note that there is a charge of $130 for testing.
Why Language Proficiency Testing?
IEP faculty work with Missouri S&T’s Testing Center to provide English testing for newly arrived international students who have not met Missouri S&T’s English Language proficiency requirements. This includes students who have:
- Low verbal GRE scores
- Borderline TOEFL scores
- Attended an American university, but did not submit TOEFL or IELTS results for admission
IEP Test Sections
Missouri S&T’s language proficiency testing and results are determined by four tests:
- Michigan Test of Language Proficiency
- Test of Writing Proficiency
- Test of Listening Proficiency
- Oral Proficiency Evaluation
Recommendations for Study
Results from all four tests are analyzed prior to making a recommendation for the student. Recommendations vary depending on initial language skills.
Students may receive:
- Full-time study in the IEP
- Full-time study at Missouri S&T
