Placement Tests

Academics / Departments & Programs / Spanish / Academics / Placement Tests

Placement tests are important tools that help determine the appropriate courses for you during your first-year orientation. The tests are administered to place you in the appropriate course level. These tests do not exempt you from taking certain classes, and you do not receive college credit based on your test scores. These tests are a guideline for you. If you feel that the suggested level may not be appropriate, please contact the Spanish department for help deciding the correct level for you.

You do not need to prepare in advance for the Spanish placement test. You will be notified in advance of all placement tests that you are required to take.
