Whatever your amount of exposure to French, we require that you take a placement test before enrolling in French courses. The test must be taken regardless of the number of years you have formally studied the language, your Advanced Placement (AP) scores, or any prior experience such as a bilingual upbringing and schooling or having lived abroad.
The placement test is available online year-round. For the most accurate placement recommendation, take it within a few months of the semester you actually plan to enroll in coursework. It covers grammar, vocabulary, listening, and reading skills.
After completing the test, you will be contacted within three business days by a faculty member in French to discuss your placement and registering for a class.
Please contact the director of the French language program, Dr. Bruce Anderson, if you have any questions about placement.
