Emmanuel Bible College

ENGLISH PROFICIENCY

 

Proficient use of the English language is essential for ministers in English-speaking assignments; therefore, Emmanuel Bible College requires two courses in English composition. An English proficiency examination is used for placement. Students whose proficiency examination scores suggest a deficiency must begin their English sequence with Basic English Skills. Credit for Basic English is not included in the minimum credit hours required for any degree. 

 

Students entering Emmanuel Bible College who have already earned a baccalaureate or higher degree at an accredited institution are not required to complete the English testing requirement. Transfer credit for English composition will be accepted under normal EBC transfer policies.

 

For admission to the college, any student who has not graduated from an English speaking high school is required to pass the Test of English as Foreign Language (TOEFL) with a score of at least 500 on the paper-based test and 173 on the computer based test. This test is given in most world population centers. A student at Emmanuel Bible College must show a proficiency in understanding and using correct English to be able to satisfactorily complete the basic curriculum in English. Such students are still subject to English placement requirements.
