Students can be admitted to Walla Walla Community College without submitting proof of English language proficiency. Students will take an English language placement test on the first day of orientation and will be placed in our Intensive English Language Program (IELP) or college-level program accordingly.
In order to begin college-level courses or high school completion directly, students must demonstrate proficiency in English, by meeting one of the following conditions:
- International TOEFL score of 61 (iBT) /173 (CBT) /500 (PBT) or higher.
- Successful completion of Walla Walla Community College IELP Level 5 classes. A TOEFL score is not required.
- IELTS of 6.0 or higher with no band lower than 5.0.
- Sufficient academic standing at an accredited U.S. college or university where English is the language of instruction.
All college-level students must take a placement test to determine placement in college academic classes. To help students prepare for the test, a free study-app ACCUPLACER is available: https://accuplacerpractice.collegeboard.org/login
