Arrivals & Placement Testing


New students are required to attend ELLI and Immigration Orientations. Students not submitting official TOEFL, TOEIC, or IELTS scores are required to sit for placement testing. Arrival times will be published in advance of new terms. Students not arriving on time for orientation and testing (if necessary) will be fined $100 as this creates additional processing time.


There are two ways an ELLI student may be placed into the program. The student may submit an official TOEFL, IELTS, or TOEIC score with their admission packet. Students choosing this option will be placed as follows:

  Level 1 Level 2 Level 3 Level 4 Level 5 Level 6
PBT 0-312 313-379 380-429 430-474  475-499 500-547
CBT 0-42 43-82 83-116 117-152 153-172 173-210
iBT 0-12 13-25 26-38 39-52 53-60 61-78
IELTS 0-2.5 3.0-4.0 4.5 5 5.5 6
TOEIC 0-286 287-343 344-502 503-750 750-824 825+

A student may also sit for placement testing after arrival in San Angelo.  This testing will be administered by the ELLI program.  Students who have submitted an official score but who wish to retest, may do so.  The highest placement result will be used to determine students’ level and coursework.
