Before you start classes in the English for Academic Purposes (EAP) Department at Capilano University, we need to place you in the correct EAP level.
The best way to find your level is to take our in-person English Placement Test (EPT) for EAP students. This test is given on the North Vancouver campus several times per year. If you cannot take the EPT, EAP also accepts other placement tests to determine a student's EAP level.
Some important information about our English Placement Test:
- The test costs $25 and takes about 3.5 hours.
- You will be tested on speaking, listening, writing, and reading
- The test is a paper/pencil test.
- Test scores will be emailed to you 1-2 days after taking the test.
You can register for the EPT if you have been admitted to the EAP Department at Capilano University. You will need your CapU student ID number. To register for the EPT, choose one of the test dates and fill out the information below:

For students using the Duolingo English test
The EAP Department will check your Duolingo total score and sub-scores before we place you in an EAP level.
