Accepted English Proficiency Scores
English proficiency is not a requirement to be accepted. However, students who receive the following minimum scores within the last year, will place into college and be assigned English 100 or English for Academic Purposes (EAP) classes. College placement allows students to take regular college classes in addition to English.
Regardless of a qualifying test score, all students will still need to take the Edmonds Community College English placement test upon arrival.
First Certificate Grades A, B, C
EIKEN (Step Eiken)
(5.0 in each band)
Pearson Test of English (PTE)
Score of 42
For test scores below these levels, placement will be determined by the student's score on the Edmonds Community College English placement test given upon arrival. A sample of the ACCUPLACER Placement test is available for practice prior to arrival.
