Placement tests

A placement test is strongly recommended for students who have taken German in high school and wish to continue study of German in college. This test is administered by the Educational Assessment Center in Schmitz Hall.

When students want to register for courses, the following table may serve as a guideline for preliminary placement until final placement is determined by the placement test score. However, if a student decides not to take the placement test, s/he must adhere to this guideline for self-placement.
