The World Languages Placement Test is for students who wish to place into higher levels of Spanish, French, and German classes. Local employers use this exam to verify skill levels for interpreter positions in their organizations. The placement exam consists of a Grammar & Reading section and a listening Section. The Language Department’s website has information on testing for additional languages.

Receiving College Credit

The World Languages Placement Exam is designed for placement purposes only. However, you can receive credit for the courses you’ve place out of by doing one of the following:

  • Signing up for and then taking challenge exams to receive a letter grade in the courses you’ve placed out of.
  • Successfully completing the course you’ve placed into, then purchasing the credits for its prerequisites.
