NOTE: The Spanish and Italian exams have an audio component. You must have speakers or headphones available before taking these exams.

NOTE: Each Language has a survey and exam component.  The survey is taken before the exam.  The questions have no point value to them; they are required to identify your language background.

Use the Language Placement Survey link to open the survey. Using the "Begin" button will begin the two-question survey. After answering the survey, be sure to use the "Save and Submit" button.
