English Assessment Test

The English Assessment Test is encouraged for all non-native speakers of English. The test was developed by the Applied English Center at the University of Kansas, and unlike the TOEFL, IELTS or Pearson Test of English, it is not a commercial test. The English assessment is designed to help you better access targeted academic support during your first semester of study at AU.

The assessment test will be on Saturday, August 16, 2014

Time: 9:00am - 12:30pm

Location: SIS 120
