Registration Information

Students must register in advance for SPEAK Test. Registration is an online process through the myINTL portal. Please login using your NID and NID password to submit your registration.

Due to the changes in SPEAK and OCI sessions starting in Fall 2010, university requirements for students to qualify for free English-speaking training have changed.

The university provides you with free English-speaking training if your score is between 45 and 55 on the initial SPEAK Test. To qualify, you must take your initial SPEAK Test at the beginning of the Fall or Spring semester. You must also attend 15 or more sessions of the Oral Communication for Internationals (OCI) training and complete the required SPEAK test in that same semester. Failure to attend the required OCI training sessions or complete the SPEAK test at the end of the semester will result in you being charged for the OCI training and SPEAK test.

For inquiries regarding the SPEAK Test please contact the English Language Institute (Global UCF, Suite 200) at 407-823-5515.
