Placement Appeals

Beginning of Semester

If a student self identifies as being misplaced, the student is asked to attend class and show rather than tell his/her teacher through performance in class. If they truly are misplaced, the teacher will follow the procedures to identify misplaced students. 

In unusual circumstances, students who provide additional evidence of language proficiency (TOEFL, transfer scores) or were tested under less than ideal conditions (unexpected noise, health conditions, etc.) may be retested or may have their placement reevaluated based on the evidence provided.


Students in levels 136-150 will receive their end-of-semester placement sheets through K-State webmail. These sheets include results from the latest WildCAT/EPT, final course grades, and the student’s placement for the next semester. Placement appeal forms with instructions are posted on the ELP webpage. Students complete the forms and submit them by email to elp@ksu.edu

Final course grades for exit-level ELP classes are available to students on KSIS.  

In addition to the webpage, students are informed about the appeal process in the following ways: 

  • By emailing the ELP address. If students email the ELP, we can inform them of the procedure for appeals through email. 
  • By emailing the advisors. Advisors can email students the appeal information. 
  • If students email teachers, the teachers pass the information on to the advising team, and they inform the students.
