When you apply, you will take the MTELP test (Michigan Test of English Language Proficiency). This test will determine
which ESL class you need to take.
You do not need to take the TOEFL test (Test of English as a Foreign Language) to enroll in
ESL at Oakland Community College. However, if you
already have a TOEFL score of 550+ on the paper test
and TWE 5.5; or 213 on the computer-based test and
TWE 5.5; or 79-80 on the iBT with a minimum of 24 in
writing, then you do not need to take ESL classes.
