Placement Exam Instructions

Important information: The placement exam is a tool used to help determine where your high school level of French or German corresponds to the course levels at CSB/SJU. The exam is not a means to "test out" of the global language proficiency requirement, nor do you receive credit for your score or placement. Therefore, to avoid skewing your proper placement, we strongly advise you not use study materials while taking the exam. This exam is accessible only to registered, enrolled CSB/SJU students.
