Summary: This test is required of all incoming freshmen who had foreign language in high school and wish to continue that same language in college. This exam is used for placement and may only be attempted once. All tests are 60 minutes and vary in the number of questions (maximum 100). A student cannot register for the foreign language that was used to satisfy the CPC requirement unless a test score is on file from either Departmental testing, the College Board SAT II or the College Board Advanced Placement Program.
