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 for more than two years are strongly encouraged to take the Foreign Language Placement Exam. Students who successfully place above the 111 level through testing will waive the 111 level course.


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.
