For those who already have ability in a language prior to registering for a UNO foreign language course, the Department offers the placement test. This test is offered in French, German, Italian, Latin and Spanish.
The placement test result is not a grade nor does it grant the student any credit. Instead, the result is expressed as the number of the course into which the student is qualified to proceed. Upon completion of the assigned course with a grade of C or better, the student may apply for by-pass credit for courses preceding the one completed.
The test is scheduled several times a year, especially around registration time and there is no charge for this test.
The dates for the Foreign Languages Placement Tests are listed below. Please e-mail ForeignLanguagesLab@uno.edu to reserve a spot for the date desired. For tests administered on campus, come with a pencil and a picture ID. For tests proctored remotely, test taker must have access to a computer with camera and audio.
