Admission and Placement

Applicants may self-certify that they have obtained a high school diploma and are not required to submit an official high school transcript.

To determine placement, all prospective students must complete the following:

  • Take a faculty-designed grammar test
  • Complete the Comprehensive Adult Student Assessment System (CASAS) pre-test
  • Participate in a personal interview

The ESL courses are sequenced and delivered in four levels, consisting of one course each. Students who enter the program at Level 2, 3, or 4 will receive Advanced Placement credit for the lower level courses. The 24 institutional credits received for the ESL program cannot be applied or transferred to any degree program at Goodwin University.

Students must earn a grade of “C-” (70%) or better in both segments to pass each level.

We're ready when you are.
