Language Placement Policy

Students take the placement exam to determine appropriate instruction levels. Instructors or advisors may recommend placement based on prior knowledge and conversation skills. 

Typically, students with 1 or 2 years of language instruction in High School will place into 101 or 102 level classes.
3+ years of language instruction in High School will begin with level 102 classes or higher based on placement exam results or instructor/advisor feedback. 

Effective December 2020
