Note: Students either take the George Brown College EAP level placement test or choose to submit IELTS or TOEFL for level placement into the EAP program, but they may not choose both. Once the choice is made, it is final.

The School of ESL accepts the IELTS Academic test for EAP program level placement. The IELTS General test is not accepted.

For current or returning EAP students who suspend their studies for more than (2) consecutive 8-week sessions, they must retake the EAP placement test or submit a IELTS/TOEFL placement test result, in order to be placed back into the program.
