Proficiency Tests

  • Students who have taken French, Spanish, German, or Latin in High School must take a language proficiency test during SOAR.
  • Placement scores will only count one year. After this time, students must ask the permission of the Department Chair to retake the placement test.
  • Students who have received a 4 or a 5 on a French, Spanish, and German AP test will place into French, Spanish, or German 311. Students who get a 4 or a 5 on both the Spanish Literature AP test and the Spanish AP test will place into Spanish 311 and get 3 UE elective credits (not Spanish course credit).
  • Students who believe they have not been placed at the appropriate level should contact the foreign languages department.
