Russian Placement Test

Students who have previously studied Russian formally or informally are required to take the Russian placement exam. This exam will help determine which Russian course best fits each student’s background. Contact the language coordinator, Irina Dolgova, for information about placement and preregistration. She may be reached via email at An orientation meeting is typically held at the Academic Fair, which takes place annually on the day before classes begin.

Before taking the placement test, please read Yale College’s policy on academic honesty.
