Students who have previously studied French, German, Japanese or Spanish should take the World Language Studies Placement Examination before enrolling in a language course at IU South Bend. The exam will place you into a course at the appropriate level. The placement exam fee is $13.80 and is billed to your bursar account.
The Spanish, French, and German exams are now computer adaptive and completed online only. The Japanese exam is a written version and an exam time can be scheduled.
Please send an email to the Language Resource Director at firstname.lastname@example.org with your Student ID # and the exam you wish to take.
