Michigan Test of English Language Proficiency (MTELP)

The Office of Graduate and International Admissions may refer international applicants to sit for the Michigan Test of English Language Proficiency (MTELP).

The 60 multiple choice items in the MTELP Series Level 3 cover four skills:  listening comprehension, grammar, vocabulary, and reading comprehension.  After the 22-item listening section, you will have 30 minutes to answer 38 grammar, vocabulary, and reading questions.

A scaled score of 64 is required for admission to Southern Illinois University Edwardsville.

Applicants who do not meet this score requirement may take the test again. However, they must wait a minimum of 6 weeks between tests and may take the test a maximum of 4 times in any consecutive 12-month period.

Applicants who have taken the test four times may not take their next test until a year and a day from their fourth most recent test. For example, applicants who took the test in July 2018, September 2018, November 2018, and January 2019 must wait until a year and a day past their July 2018 test date to retake the test.
