GRAD English Language Support Classes

The W&M English Language program, in collaboration with the Graduate Center, offers English language support classes to new and current graduate students.

English Placement Test

As part of International student orientation, the Reves Center conducts an English language placement test for new graduate students in Arts and Sciences programs. This is required by the faculty of Arts & Sciences and is used to determine if a student would benefit from an English language support class (listed below). The test results do not impact a student’s admission or enrollment into his/her program.

This test consists of two parts: a test of Reading, Writing and Grammar (50 minutes) and Oral Proficiency Interview (10 minutes).
