Second Language Assessment

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:

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, email: 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 the Registrar or Admissions
