The cost of the exam is five dollars and is billed to your Drake account. The exam takes approximately 20-30 minutes.
A placement test for previous experience with Chinese, French, German, or Spanish should be taken prior to orientation. The test can be taken online at a convenient date and time, and you will receive results immediately upon exam completion. You will then be able to register for the course into which you have been placed when it's offered next. The test fee will appear on your first Drake bill.
For previous experience with Japanese, please complete the online Japanese survey.
You will be able to register for the 001-level at summer orientation—no placement exam is needed. Only students with absolutely no knowledge of a language may register for the introductory 001-level courses. If you have any prior experience with the language, you must take a placement exam.
