APP/ESOL Department Placement Test

OUR NEXT SEMESTER IS FALL 2022, WHICH WILL RUN FROM August 29 to December 16, 2022.  

Sign up for upcoming University of Southern Maine, Admissions Pathways Program/ESOL Department Placement Tests.  Interested students must take this placement test before signing up for classes. Tests are free and take approximately 2 hours.  Skills tested include listening, vocabulary, grammar, reading and writing.  Please visit our test preparation tips page at this link.

Please see this link for current USM ESOL program information for someone living locally.

Please note that students may take this test one time before each semester, so PLEASE ONLY SIGN UP FOR ONE TESTING DATE.  


If you are feeling ill, or think you have been exposed to COVID-19, PLEASE STAY AT HOME.  We will work with you to reschedule your test. 


  • PARKING:  Please note that there is construction currently going on in and around USM.  The parking garage located on Bedford Street is open, but you must take a ticket and pay $2.00 per hour.  There are also some lots available, but please allow enough time to find parking prior to the start of your test.  Remember that the test will take 2 hours.


  • BUILDING ACCESS: Please meet at 101 Payson Smith Hall (ESOL office) on the USM Portland campus, 10-15 minutes before the test is scheduled to begin.  Someone will be there to let you into the building.


  • You MUST bring the following to the test:

    • A face mask (you will be required to wear it for the 2 hour testing period)

    • Your own writing utensils (two- three pencils and a working eraser)

    • Paper (if you need it) 


Please check your email regularly for updates and more information about safety protocol, parking information, and any updated building access instructions.
