Foreign Language Placement

Prior to their arrival on campus all students who studied a foreign language should read the following instructions on the Modern Languages department site in order to enroll in the language level appropriate to their high school preparation: http://www.stlawu.edu/modern-languages/information-first-year-students. Once enrolled in a course at St. Lawrence, all students are automatically required to take a placement test for French, German or Spanish administered by the department to determine if the course they have chosen is adequate for their level of preparation. Students may not enroll for credit in a beginning language course if they have studied the language for two years or more in a secondary school.
