Foreign Language Placement Test

World Languages and Cultures Requirement

This requirement consists of two parts, World Languages and World Cultures.

For the World Languages portion of this requirement, students wishing to continue a language with which they have some experience, either academic or personal, must take a placement test. If they place at the second semester level, they must take 6 s.h. (2 sequential courses) to fill the requirement. If they place at the third semester level or higher, they must take only 3 s.h. (one course) at the level at which they place, or a course in English about a foreign culture or civilization. Students wishing to begin a new language, with which they have no experience, must take 6 s.h. of that language.

Note: The first semester level course (101) of a language is meant for true beginners who have no experience with the language. Students with experience, either academic or personal, will be placed at the second semester level or higher. Any exceptions to this policy must be approved by the appropriate department chair.
