Language Assessments

Language placement exams are available in most of our languages. Students MUST take a language placement exam in the language(s) they studied in high school even if they do not plan to continue to study that language at Elon. Testing generally occurs in the late spring and summer. Students who need help determining course placement in a language for which we do not yet have a placement test may contact us at languages@elon.edu.

Testing dates for 2016:

  • For spring admits and new transfer students only: The test will be available in Carlton 221 on January 31 from 3-5 p.m.
  • All students must take the language placement exam by October 1 of their first year at Elon. Students are allowed two tries; the higher score is counted. That score stands and may not be replaced by later testing. If you take the test after October 1st, your score cannot be used to place out of the requirement
  • After Oct. 1, the placement exams are offered in Carlton 221 on Feb. 1 from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. only.  See the E-net announcement for details and sign-up instructions (http://www.elon.edu/E-Net/Article/121731 ).
  • Attempts to access the placement test outside of proctored testing dates will be considered a violation of the Honor Code.
