Placement & Proficiency Testing

Placement Test Survey

All students must take the Placement Test Survey prior to taking their first language course at SCU! A PLACEMENT RECOMMENDATION IS A PREREQUISITE FOR ALL SCU LANGUAGE COURSES. Once you have taken a language course at SCU, that course will serve as your prerequisite for further language courses.  There is no pass or fail to this test, and your results will NOT satisfy the SCU Core Language requirement. However, this result will indicate the appropriate course where you can begin to satisfy your Language requirement.

Proficiency Exam

Proficiency exams are available on a limited basis to students who have already developed a significant level of proficiency in a language other than English and who wish to demonstrate this proficiency to satisfy the SCU Core Language requirement.

You must have started taking classes at SCU in order to register for this exam.
