English Program

English Language Institute Program
One of the programs available to international students is Broward College's intensive English Language Institute Program, which consists of four levels. After being accepted to our college, you will be required to take the Broward College English Placement Test, known as the Levels of English Proficiency exam or LOEP. The scores on your LOEP exam will determine which level you will be placed in. After completing level four, students may request a certificate of completion. To request a certificate of completion, please print and complete the application below and submit it to the International Student Admissions Office at the Willis Holcombe Center.
 
Note:  Students planning to apply for the Language Program are required to have a minimal knowledge of English in order to take the college placement test (LOEP).

After completing level four of the language program, students who wish to continue their education with an associate's or bachelor's degree program at Broward College, will be required to:
  • Take the Post-secondary Education Readiness Test (PERT)
  • Based on the PERT test results, students may either continue into college level English (ENC1101) or complete two additional EAP courses—EAP1540C and EAP 1640C (may be used as elective credits towards a degree).
