L&S Language Requirement – Students from Spanish-speaking Families

Students from Spanish-speaking Families

If you were raised in a Spanish-speaking household and have spoken Spanish fairly regularly throughout your life, please fill out this language background questionnaire after taking the Spanish placement exam, in order to receive guidance about placement in a course, retroactive credits, and fulfilling the language requirement for your L&S degree.

If you did not take the Spanish placement exam with your other placement exams prior to arriving on campus, you are able to do so now. The Department of Spanish & Portuguese does not administer the Spanish placement exam, but you can find more information, including schedule, on the Testing & Evaluation website. Placement results are generally available in your Student Center four business days after completion of the exam.
