(This is not a placement exam / see placement information)
Students who have studied a language for four or more years and who have excelled academically, or those who have some native-speaker ability or study abroad experience, may wish to take the exemption exam (only for Arabic, Chinese, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese, Russian, and Spanish). Passing the exemption exam yields no credit; however, it does exempt students from their foreign language requirement in the College of Arts and Science. Passing the exam also enables students to advance to the 200-level if they wish. PLEASE NOTE - Students may not advance beyond the 107 level without passing the exemption exam or obtaining AP credit.
The exemption exam can be taken only once. It cannot be taken once the student has begun or completed 105, 106, or 107.
Students who demonstrate proficiency (in reading, writing, speaking, and comprehending) in languages other than those listed above should contact the Foreign Language Placement Advisor to discuss their exemption.
Exemption exams are offered by appointment throughout the year.
Since space is limited, students interested in taking the exam should contact the Placement Advisor by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) to schedule an appointment. The appointment should be scheduled a minimum of 48 hours in advance of the desired test date.
Please email or call the placement advisor to schedule appointments or to ask questions about this exam or other placement issues at:
