Spanish Placement

Students must complete a mandatory Foreign Language (FL) graduation requirement.  Language placement for SPANISH varies and is based upon past experience (in class, at home, or abroad) and test scores.  Follow the steps bellow to guide you through the Language placement process. Please complete the language placement process in a timely manner to ensure you can register in the language courses of your choosing. 

*If you are a transfer student, please review the "My Progress" section in Self Service to verify if your language requirement has been fulfilled.

If you require a SPAN oral assessment to complete your language placement, you MUST schedule it in the Oral Assessment form below: please note the day and time of your Oral Assessment in your calendar and please show up.  You must complete language placement prior to registration.  So please complete your placement as soon as possible.
