Language Placement and Credit

Placement Testing Information

Students may take the language placement test for French, German, Russian, and Spanish in the Language Media Center on a walk-in basis.  The latest a student may start the test in the LMC is 2 p.m.

Students may also email wll@memphis.edu to set up the placement test if they are unable to come to campus when the LMC is open.

For placement in other languages, please email wll@memphis.edu and we will be happy to refer you to the appropriate person.

Credit by Examination

The department does not normally award credit by examination for languages taught in the department. 

Students with competency in languages not taught in the department may be able to take a credit by examination exam through the FLATS program run by Brigham Young University, for which our department is an approved proctor.  More information can be found at: https://flats.byu.edu/.  The department can also proctor exams offered by New York University: https://www.sps.nyu.edu/professional-pathways/proficiency-testing.html

The University of Memphis does offer the CLEP exam through the Testing Center.  This exam allows student the option for credit by examination in French, German, and Spanish.
