1. Q: If I follow the regulations and complete General English courses, am I accepted to reach the Undergraduate English Graduation Threshold of NSYSU?

    A: According to the English Development Regulations for NSYSU non-English Major Undergraduates, students registering from the academic year 100 (including the transfer and foreign students) have to take 4 credits in the field of “Language Course: English,” and reach the English Proficiency Level of NSYSU. In other words, students have to get 4 credits AND attend for any of the indicated official English proficiency tests and reach the standard in order to complete the Undergraduate English Graduation Threshold of NSYSU.

2. Q: Why do I have to take official English Proficiency Test before I become a senior?

    A: It is not mandatory to take official English Proficiency Test prior to the senior year. However, we strongly suggest students take tests as early as possible. Should students fail to reach the standard, they can apply one of the remedial approaches to fulfill the English Threshold requirement.

3. Q:Is there any alternative if the scores of my English Proficiency test fail to meet the requirement?

    1) Take NSYSU Campus English Proficiency Test and reach the standard.It’s free to take the test for the first time. Fee for the following test is NT 500. 
    2) Pay for taking the Refresher Course in English and fulfill the course requirements
