Foreign Language Exam


Students who wish to receive credit and advanced placement in foreign languages will be given departmentally administered placement tests during their two-day orientation and registration program or by making arrangements with the Department of Modern Languages and Classics. Students are expected to take these department placement tests in any language that they have studied and intend to continue studying before entering the university.


Students who have completed more than one year of a foreign language in high school should not enroll for credit in the 101 level of that language (exceptions: Chinese, German, or Japanese) unless they receive permission from the chairperson. Students placed in any higher-level course will receive up to 14 hours of credit for the courses they test out of if they earn a grade of C or higher in the course in which they are placed. Native speakers who have completed high school studies in their native countries are not eligible for credit in the first or second year of their native languages.


There are no fees for the exam.
