You must establish English language proficiency to enter an academic program. You can request that an official score report be delivered directly from the testing organization to Ferris. The list of accepted tests and scores along with our English proficiency policies can be found below.
We reserve the right to request that students take an additional English placement
upon arrival if English skills do not appear to equal the submitted test scores.
If you have not taken an official test, you can take a proficiency exam when you arrive at Ferris. If you pass the test, you can begin studying in your program. If you do not pass the exam, you can enroll in the West Michigan English Language Institute to improve your English language skills
Applicants from English Speaking Countries
Proof of English proficiency may not be required if applying from a country in which English is the native language, or if the student has completed a non-ESL academic course at an approved college or university with C grades or above.
