Last day for language assessments this semester is Sunday, Nov. 4 

Proctored language assessments in five languages for students who missed the Oct. 1 deadline of their first year at Elon. ***Click here to sign up for an appointment***

Students – Did you fail to take a language assessment by Oct. 1 of your first year at Elon? Or have you been told that you need to re-take the assessment due to a technical glitch? You MUST have on record an assessment score for the language(s) that you studied in high school (or previously) in order to be admitted into ANY language class, even the beginning level of a different language.

The exam will be proctored by a faculty member who will also provide advice, guidance and permission-to-enroll for winter or spring language courses based on your score.

You must sign up for an appointment by Saturday, Nov. 3 at 3 pm. Click here to reach the sign-up page.  Sign up at least 24 hours before the testing time.  

The FINAL testing times this semester for French, German, Italian, Latin and Spanish are 3-6 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 4. Please come to Carlton 221 a few minutes before your scheduled testing time. You must bring your Phoenix card and a laptop with you. Allow approximately 30-45 minutes to complete preliminary paperwork and to take the exam.

After Oct. 1, the exam is for placement purposes only. You will not be able to place out of the requirement through your score because of the university policy that limits that option to students who meet the Oct. 1 deadline.

If you have any questions, send an email to and use “placement test – post Oct. 1” in the subject line.
