HOW CAN I SATISFY THE LANGUAGE REQUIREMENT?
A Placement Exam is used to place students into the appropriate level of a language course. The Exam is required of all incoming students who have studied a foreign language in high school. The Placement Exams for French, German, Russian and Spanish are administered online and free of charge.
Credit can be awarded based on scores from the CLEP exam for French, German, or Spanish. Contact the Office of Testing Services to arrange to take the CLEP. Contact REACH for information on tutoring sessions for CLEP exams.
Who should take the CLEP exam?
Please note: Achieving a credit awarding score on the CLEP exam does not preclude a student from taking the next language course in the sequence.
