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. Come with a pencil and a picture ID. All tests will begin promptly at the time stated and will last one hour. Further questions regarding these tests may be directed by phone to 504-280-6658 and 504-280-6287 or via e-mail to the above address.
