German Placement Test
Updated June 2017
Students who have previously studied German formally or informally are required to take the German placement exam. This exam will help determine which German class best fits each student’s background. Placement can be adjusted at the beginning of the semester if the student or instructor feels that it is inopportune. Once the placement test has been completed, students may pre-register for German courses. Information about the pre-registration process is listed on the departmental website. Students who have demonstrated advanced proficiency by a score of 5 on the AP German exam are eligible to enroll directly in L5 German courses. Students who are beginners with no prior knowledge of German do not need to take the placement exam but may pre-register for any German L1 class. The German department will also participate in the Academic Fair. See the German Department website for updates and more information.
The online placement test will be available from July 1st at 9am (EST) through August 15th at 5pm (EST).
