Placement Tests

Foreign Language

  • Some first-year students who will take courses in French, Italian, and Spanish must take a 20-minute online placement test. We will notify you by email if you need to take this test. You must set up an account with TrueNorth to take the test. Complete it by mid-May.
  • Transfer students and freshmen planning to take courses in other languages will be placed into the appropriate level based on the courses you took in high school.
