Language Placement Program

Language Placement Program for International Students

Congratulations on becoming a member of the Tulane University Class of 2025! As an international student, you are required to participate in the online placement program “American Academic English” from May 10th - May 21th.  The online program can be completed from home and requires approximately two hours of your time to complete the required online tasks.  The program is designed to help choose which writing, public speaking, and English classes will give you the best chance of success at Tulane. As many of you will not be arriving to Tulane later, this online course is a great way to meet and build connections with your future classmates.

Access the Canvas course by May 10: Here is a video on how to access the course.  If the video is not accessible to you, the simple summary is that the course is on Canvas, you sign in at https://tulane.edu/mytulane using your Tulane email and password to sign on. You might need to accept an invitation to see the course.  You will likely receive a course invitation via email. Please choose “accept” on the welcome page when you log-in to Canvas. Right now, the courses are relatively blank.  IF YOU HAVE DIFFICULTY ACCESSING THE CANVAS COURSES, EMAIL LearnEng@tulane.edu AND GO TO THE HELP SESSION HERE (https://tulane.zoom.us/j/92519109012), MAY 10 at 8:00 in the morning or in the evening New Orleans time.
