Results

The results of the MSU examinations are released on the MSU accounts provided for individual candidates and schools 40 working days after the date of the exams.

Scoring

MSU-CELC

In order to pass the MSU-CELC a candidate needs an overall score of 60 points and above from all four sections.

MSU-CELP

Effective with the December 2017 administrations, MSU is eliminating the requirement for candidates to earn a minimum of 12 out of 25 points on all of the CELP subsections in order to pass the exam.  This simplified scoring system has been in place for CELC for several administrations and will now apply to both exams. 

Henceforth, in the interest of transparency, every candidate who receives a total score of 60 or more points will earn a certificate, and the candidate’s total score and subsection scores will be reported on the certificate.

Rescoring

Terms and Conditions

A candidate is allowed to request re-scoring of one or more sections of the exam, subject to the restrictions imposed by the English Language Center of Michigan State University. The period during which such requests may be submitted is determined by the English Language Center as soon as the results for each administration are announced. Candidates eligible for rescoring are required to have obtained an overall score of at least 58 points. Those who have already been awarded a PASS are not allowed to apply for rescoring in the hope of improving their grade.

Unless exceptional circumstances dictate otherwise, Anatolia College and The American College of Greece are not involved in the rescoring procedure and it will, therefore, be necessary for you to contact the English Language Center at Michigan State University directly.
