After being accepted to our college, students are required to take the Broward College English Placement Test, known as the Levels of English Proficiency exam or LOEP. The LOEP scores will determine which level the student will be placed in.

After completing level four of the language program, students are automatically accepted to continue their education at Broward College. In addition, the Office of International Admissions will change the I-20 from Language Training to a college degree program.

Note: Students planning to apply for the Language Program are required to have a basic knowledge of English in order to take the Levels of English Proficiency test (LOEP).
