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, email: WLC.PlacementExam@oregonstate.edu.
Students without previous training or experience in a second language are highly encouraged to start 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.
Non-degree students need to take the placement test. Please note that we do not review transcripts.
Prospective students can take the placement test. Please note that we do not review transcripts.
