Changes in English Language Requirements and a new Language Testing System

Red River College is phasing out the use of Duolingo scores as an accepted method to assess English language proficiency for all programs. Effective June 30, 2021, RRC will no longer recognize Duolingo scores as an admission supporting document.

At the same time, the College is happy to introduce you to the Password Language Test (in replacement of OWLS test) as the official language assessment platform for students who are to study with us for the Intensive English Program. Password is a customized, fully online, secure test of English academic proficiency. Students all over the world can access it at any time in any time zone. It provides results using the Global Scale of English, which is the same as IELTS.

More information will be announced in the coming weeks.
