3) English Language Placement:
All applicants who do not meet the English proficiency requirements listed above must take an English proficiency test administered by the University. Results of this test will determine whether the student goes into the English preparatory program or the collegiate program. 
It is recommended that applicants who have not previously taken a TOEFL or IELTS test should take the AUPP placement test, as the cost is significantly lower than the TOEFL or IELTS.There is a non-refundable USD 15 fee for the English proficiency test, paid at the time of testing.

AUPP recognizes academic work completed under the International Baccalaureate (IB) program. Students who complete the requirements for an IB Diploma with scores of 5 or higher on standard and higher level examinations may be awarded up to 30 units collegiate credit at AUPP. 
Students who have not completed the requirements for an IB Diploma may only receive credit for scores of 5 or higher on higher level examinations; students may receive six (6) units for scores of 6 or 7 and three (3) units for a score of 5. Credits are only awarded on the receipt of the official International Baccalaureate transcript, and with the approval of the VPASA. 
Once academic credit has been awarded, the VPASA, in consultation with the student and an academic advisor or the Admissions Office, will determine the equivalent AUPP courses to be credited.
