English as a Second Language Testing

Cell phones are not allowed at the testing stations. Please make the appropriate arrangements for storing cell phones.

All students whose native language is not English must write an English placement essay to determine which writing and/or reading classes they will need. The ESL essay exam is taken only after admission to Purdue University Fort Wayne.

Important: A photo ID is required in order to test.
