Placement Testing for F1 Visa Holders

Placement Testing for F-1 Visa Holders

All beginning students, citizens, immigrants and international/non-immigrant students at CSCC, take placement tests in English and math to determine the classes in which to start. Virtually all non-native English speakers are required to take a written English composition placement test when they arrive at Columbus State. Your score on the placement test will determine whether you must take one or more English as a Second Language (ESL) courses before beginning your major program courses. Students who have taken college-level English at another U.S. institution may be exempt from taking the placement test. ESL courses cannot be used as credit towards a degree.

Once you have obtained the results of your placement test, you will be ready to select and register for classes.
