Admissions GSTEP

The Admissions GSTEP evaluates the English language proficiency of students whose native language is not English. GSTEP scores can be used to meet the admissions requirements for English language proficiency at Georgia State University.

GSTEP scores are also accepted by many other colleges and universities in the Atlanta metropolitan area. Students applying to schools other than GSU should check with that school's admissions office to find out if they accept GSTEP scores. Georgia Perimeter College (GPC) accepts GSTEP scores for admissions purposes. For more information, please contact their office of International Student Admissions and Advising

The Admissions GSTEP is given several times per academic semester by the Department of Applied Linguistics at Georgia State University. Test dates are listed on our testing calendar.
