The test is written at Capilano University. It takes about five hours. Your score on the test will be used to choose the level of EAP courses to take.

The English Placement Test will be given on April 27 and May 4, 2020. 


You must pay a $50 fee before you take the test. You can pay at the Cashier's Office in the Birch Building, room BR214.
