SLCC English/ESL Placement

When do my scores expire?

Your English scores will never expire and can be used at any time to register for eligible courses.

Is retesting allowed?

Yes. If you have tested previously and want to retest, please be aware that after the first time taking the test, retakes are limited to 1 retake per semester, with the following wait time:

  • You are required to wait 24 hours between attempts for the English test.

***Retakes are subject to a non-refundable $15.00 retest fee that will be collected at the time a retake appointment is scheduled. Taking a test before the appropriate waiting period has passed, will result in the test scores being disqualified and the $15.00 retest fee will be forfeited. If you have questions regarding retesting please contact 801-957-2133.
