PIESL provides a number of English language testing services to the UNL community. Prospective students whose native language is not English have several options for demonstrating their proficiency in academic English as part of their application process, including the in-house English Placement Examination (EPE). The EPE is also used for assessing the linguistic readiness of admitted students as they begin their study at an institution where English is the medium of instruction. Assignment to Credit English as a Second Language coursework stems from a student's performance on the EPE.
For a listing of scheduled testing dates, times, and places, see our calendar of events. To register for tests, please call or stop by our office.
