EALAC Language Testing Fee Policies
- Students can take the Placement Test for FREE on the designated date(s) arranged by each language program.
- A $50 fee will be charged if a student takes the test on a date outside of the designated date(s).
- If a student requires a hard copy certificate issued by the department, a $50 fee will be charged. Due to COVID-19 all certificates will be submitted electronically as a PDF.

Schools not subject to fee: General Studies, Columbia College, Barnard, School of International and Public Affairs, Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, and School of the Arts.
