Students taking Spanish, French, German, and Chinese can take a placement test to ensure they enroll in the correct course level. (Students enrolling in Italian will work directly with their faculty member.) The placement test is only used as an advising tool to ensure correct placement. Students should also explore course content during the add/drop period to be sure they fit in that course. We are happy to move students who take the placement test to a higher or lower level course as needed.
