Fast Track to Language Proficiency

For students with prior knowledge of a language, we suggest the FAST TRACK to language proficiency. With the Fast Track, students may finish the language requirement more quickly, be exempt from foreign language, and/or enter more quickly into language minors and majors.

The Fast Track placement exam for FRENCH, ITALIAN and SPANISH is administered by the Modern Languages Media Center (Building 2S, Room 114) and it consists of a computerized multiple choice exam.  The tests run on a walk-in basis during the dates/times listed below. Spots are limited to 30 students per session.  Exams start punctually at the time indicated.

Students must bring a CSI photo ID or be aware of the Empl ID Number.  Photo ID are issued by the Office of Public Safety or Parking Services.

PLEASE NOTE: When the time indicates 'walk-in', student can begin the placement test at any time during the hours indicated.
