International Programs welcomes all new international students to Leeward Community College with a one week social and informative orientation program.

During the orientation period, you will

  • take a placement test
  • register for your courses
  • learn about campus life and services for international students
  • participate in social activities and campus tours with domestic students

Placement Tests

During Orientation week you will take the Leeward CC placement test to determine your English proficiency. The placement test will indicate if your English is adequate for success in the degree program at Leeward, or if you need additional English instruction in the English Language Institute prior to enrolling in the credit program.

Note: the TOEFL test score does not guarantee placement in the degree program. The TOEFL is for admission purposes only and all students whose native language is not English are required to take the placement test.
