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 MANDARIN CHINESE (new), FRENCH, ITALIAN and SPANISH is administered at the Modern Languages Media Center ( 2S 114), and it consists of a computerized multiple choice exam. Spots are limited to 30 students per session. No appointment required!
Students must present a CSI photo ID or provide the Empl ID number in order to take the exam.
