Foreign Language Placement Exam


As part of The College at Brockport's General Education Program students need to satisfy a foreign language requirement. All students who have studied a foreign language in high school are strongly encouraged to take the Foreign Language Placement Exam. Students who pass the exam will have the foreign language requirement waived or will have a reduction in the number of classes needed to be taken to fulfill the requirement.


Foreign Language Placement Exams are offered in:

  • French
  • German
  • Spanish

To arrange placement testing for all other languages, please contact The Department of Modern Languages and Cultures by calling (585) 395-5840 or visiting the Department located in room 131 of the Liberal Arts Building.
