Beginning with Spring 2018, the English Language Institute will be offering the Versant English Test in place of the SPEAK Test.

The university provides you with free English-speaking training if your score is between 58 and 68 on the initial Versant Test. To qualify, you must take your initial 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 exit test in that same semester. Failure to attend the required OCI training sessions or complete the exit test at the end of the semester will result in you being charged for the OCI training and Versant test.
