Foreign Language Placement Exam


Here’s what you need to know…

  • All students planning to receive a Bachelor of Arts from Carson-Newman University are required to complete 6 hours of French, German, Spanish, Greek or Hebrew at the beginning (100) or intermediate (200) level (depending on their major). They can meet this requirement by enrolling in up to four semesters of language (101,102, 201, and 202) or by “skipping courses” by taking the placement exam.
  • All Bachelor of Science Business majors are now required to complete 3 semester hours of foreign language or test at the 102-level proficiency.
  • Students who intend to continue studying a language that they studied in high school must take the Foreign Language placement exam to determine their proper placement in language courses. Transfer students who have not completed any college level foreign language course are required to take the placement exam as well.
  • The Foreign Language placement exam is an online exam that will cost $10. You may take the exam at any time. You will not be able to register for a foreign language course until you have taken the exam.

Once you create an account and pay for the exam, you will be taken to the placement exam. 

IMPORTANT:  Upon completion of the online exam, current Carson-Newman students will need to notify Dr. Mary Baldridge with their name, student ID#, and advisor’s name in order for the results to be downloaded and assessed.  Results for incoming freshmen will be collected by Admissions staff and provided to the appropriate advisor.
