English Placement Test

All entering CSU undergraduates admitted to a CSU campus are required, unless exempt, to take the English Placement Test (EPT).

The EPT is not an admission test. The EPT is a placement test that will enable your CSU campus to find out whether you need remedial courses in reading or writing before undertaking college level work requiring these fundamental skills. This is why you must take the EPT before enrollment in the CSU.

For additional information on how to interpret EPT scores please visit the English and Foreign Languages website.
