Standardized English Proficiency Test (SEPT)

  • The Standardized English Proficiency Test (SEPT) is a standardized test based on the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR), an international benchmark used to describe language ability. SEPT is designed to measure individuals' communicative language ability for whom English is a second or foreign language. 

    The scores obtained from the SEPT are used for placement decisions of learners into the different levels of the School of Continuing Education (SCE) CEFR-aligned English Language Program, Graduate School of Education, and School of Business, Executive Education programs. The scores are also be used for additional purposes such as university admission, occupational appointments/promotion, traveling abroad, and scholarships. SEPT scores are valid for one year.

    This test covers three language skills: listening, reading, and writing. These skills address four main language use contexts defined by the CEFR: personal, social, occupational, and educational.

    The SEPT information document shows what the test looks like, how to answer during the test, what to bring on the test day, actions that cancel the SEPT score, and other information related to the SEPT scores and results.
