Mississippi College considers English language scores from the TOEFL and IELTS exams when considering students for admission; however, prior to enrolling in classes, non-general admission International students are required to pass the Mississippi College Intensive English Program Placement Test.
The Mississippi College Intensive English Program Placement Test is designed to assess a student's English language skill. The Reading, Listening, Grammar and Vocabulary sections are multiple choice and provide the IEP with a clear understanding of a student's proficiency level. There is also a written component consisting of a timed essay and a short spoken interview. Based a student's performance on this placement test, he/she will be placed into either the Intensive English Program or the Link Program (please visit our Classes page for more detailed information on the specific IEP classes).
Please, see the IEP Handbook for more information regarding placement and exit scores.
