IEP Level Placement

Students are placed into an IEP level based on English language test scores when they first arrive at SUU. Students can get a test score in two ways.

  1. Students give an official TOEFL, IELTS, or iTEP Academic score report to SUU. Only official score reports are accepted.
  2. Students take an English placement test when they arrive at SUU. The test is free for new students who do not have an official TOEFL, IELTS, or iTEP Academic score report.

The table below shows what test scores are needed for each IEP level. Students who wish to retake the IEP Level Placement test at the end of a term should contact the ALCC.

Level TOEFL iBT IELTS iTEP academic
IEP 1 32-38 3.0 2.5-2.8
IEP 2 39-45 3.5 2.9-3.1
IEP 3 46-53 4.0 3.2-3.4
IEP 4 53-59 4.5 3.5-3.7
