Engl 106 - International Sections

Most international students enroll in English 10600-I##. However, the following guidelines may
help you in determining the appropriate composition placement for you.

You should consider enrolling in English 10600-I## if
* Your TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) total score is below 100 (internet-based test)
* Your TOEFL writing subscore is below 26 (internet based test)
* English has not been the medium of instruction for most of your education prior to enrolling at Purdue
* You are in the first generation of your family to attend a college or university
* Your speaking/listening skills in English are not as strong as your writing/reading skills in English
* You can read difficult passages in English, but you are likely to need extra time and will have difficulty with a heavy reading load
