English proficiency is not required for admission to Kansas State University. However, you must meet the English Proficiency Standards before you enroll in courses.

Choose the option that best works for you.

Option 1 icon

Test online or on-campus.

There is no need to test before arriving to K-State! You can take the online WildCAT English Test.

If you prefer, you can take the English Proficiency Test (EPT) once you get to campus by contacting the English Language Program at elp@k-state.edu.

Option 2 icon

Pre-place in English classes.

Know your study plan for the first year before you arrive.

Option 3 icon

Waive English classes

Submit qualifying test scores or transcripts before you enroll.

Students can provide official documentation of English proficiency until 12:00 p.m. (noon) of the last day of enrollment (usually a Friday) before the first day of classes. After this time, scores from the WildCAT/EPT will determine students’ placement for the current semester. Any evidence of English proficiency provided after this time will be used for placement the following semester.
