Academic Advising for World Languages and Cultures (WLC)

Prospective e-campus students should contact an E-campus Success Counselor for information about our programs.  Make an appointment with Amy or Theresa (scroll to the bottom and follow the red link). They can help determine if the program is the right fit, give an estimate of the time it will take to complete the program, review transfer admissions requirements, general program requirements, and provide a free service of transcript evaluation.
To declare a minor or major in one of the WLC programs, visit the College of Liberal Arts (CLA) advising office in Gilkey 213.  Also plan to meet with your WLC advisor to make sure you understand the requirements of the major or minor and discuss your academic, personal and career goals.  
Currently admitted Oregon State students will work with the language advisor, Danielle Batson, to navigate university language requirements as well as language major and minor requirements. Language majors must meet with an advisor by the end of spring quarter in order to receive a registration PIN for the following academic year.  We recommend meeting with your advisor regularly throughout your studies to ensure that you stay on track academically.  In addition to language advising, students should meet with their College of Liberal Arts advisor for advising related to the Liberal Arts and Baccalaureate Core requirements.

Language Placement Tests

Students with previous training or experience in a second language who do not have advanced placement or college credit are required to take a Second Language Assessment before enrolling in a language course. The placement test for most languages is completely online and can be taken anytime. No proctor is required. To request access to the placement exam contact the main office of the World Languages and Cultures Program, 210 Kidder Hall, 541-737-2146 or Students will need to provide their OSU ID number.

Students without previous training or experience in a second language are highly encouraged to complete their second language requirement in their freshman year as only a limited number of seats are available and courses fill quickly. World Languages cannot guarantee accommodation and on-time graduation for students delaying the completion of their language requirement. 

Ecampus students may contact Helen Wilhelm in World Languages and Cultures,, for information, a testing link and access code. You will need to provide your OSU ID. If you do not know your OSU ID number, please contact Ecampus Student Services,
