All new students must take the ACLI ESL placement test before enrolling in ESL classes. The test consists of a writing sample and an oral interview. This placement test is for ESL classes offered through NOVA’s American Culture & Language Institute (ACLI).
After you have completed the test, you will receive your ACLI placement level and ESL course information. Please keep the test results for reference. Test results can be used at all ACLI locations.
Attention new F-1 students: You must check in first with an international student adviser before making your test appointment. Otherwise, your registration will be blocked. Important: Use your student ID number when creating your MyWorkforce profile. The student ID number is located on your Welcome letter and I-20 form.
Waiting List: Do not put your name on a waiting list for testing. Try for another day and time. Your name on a waiting list is NOT an appointment. You will not be able to test that day.
