Note: Students either take the George Brown College EAP level placement test or choose to submit IELTS, TOEFL, or Duolingo for level placement into the EAP program, but they may not choose more than one. Once the choice is made, it is final. The IELTS, TOEFL, or Duolingo score report must be achieved within (2) years prior to the EAP program session start date and must be submitted before the session start date.

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

NEW (May 2020): For current or returning EAP students who suspend their studies for more than five (5) consecutive 8-week sessions, they must retake the EAP placement test or submit a IELTS/TOEFL/Duolingo placement test result in order to be placed back into the program.
