Undergraduate “advanced-level” ESL students may take academic classes at the same time as ESL classes if they meet the specific criteria in the ESL Student Handbook. Students who achieve a GPA of at least 2.0 in each non-ESL course and 3.0 or higher in ESL courses will be eligible to be fully admitted. Any “advanced-level” student not achieving admission during his or her first semester will be required to repeat the part-time academic/part-time ESL enrollment in the next semester or to take only ESL classes, at the discretion of the ESL Director.
International students who are non-native speakers of English must take an ESL writing placement examination, administered by ESL in order to place in an English composition course, ESL 1100 or ESL 1101.
NOTE: Students may take the ESL placement test only once registered for an ESL and/or academic classes at Troy University. Students who are placed into the ESL program must complete all levels before matriculation to an academic program only once while registered for any ESL and/or academic classes at Troy University.
Any student whose first language is not English must submit an official score report for the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL), the International English Testing System (IELTS), or the ACT Compass ESL examination. Students who do not meet the minimum English proficiency requirements specified for the TOEFL, IELTS or ACT Compass ESL test will be placed at the appropriate level in the Troy University English as a Second Language (ESL) program. The ESL program is available on the Troy Campus.
