ATTENTION: Effective in Fall II 2017, there is a $10 Placement Exam & Advisement fee.  Instructions for paying the $10 fee will be provided to you by the ELI Admissions Office.  You may pay this fee during your application process via Flywire.  All students attending the ELI must pay the $10 Placement Exam & Advisement fee.  Online Placement Exams will be available starting in Winter 2018.


The ELI English Placement Test includes four parts: a multiple-choice listening test, a multiple-choice grammar test, a multiple-choice reading test (1.5hrs total), a writing test (45 minutes), and a speaking test (10 minutes). You will get your test results from your advisor the day of the test. You will also register for classes the day of the test.

Please arrive at 9:00 am to the ELI Office. Students should plan to spend the full day at Pace University when they attend their placement exam for testing, advisement, payment, and registration.

Please only choose ONE (1) exam date for the session you are first registering at the ELI.
