Academic English Program

Placement testing to determine enrollment in AEIS courses is a REQUIREMENT for new international undergraduate students. 

The Academic English for International Students (AEIS) Program helps international undergraduate students develop advanced expertise in English. Students take regular UO courses along with one or more AEIS writing, reading and oral communication courses during their first year of study. To determine which AEIS courses to enroll in, new students are required to take an AEIS online placement test prior to the start of International Student Orientation. There are a few exceptions to this requirement. For more information, refer to the Pre-Arrival Checklist
