The Modern Languages Placement Exam is expected to open on June 1, 2021.
Modern Languages Offerings and Requirements:
Students who have never taken the language before should enroll in 101.
Most students will take two semesters in the same language. Students must consult with their department.
The Department of Modern Languages, Literatures and Cultures offers four languages: French, German, Spanish, and Chinese (Asian Studies).
If students wish to continue with the same language that they studied in high school, they must take the Citadel’s Modern Languages Placement Exam (MLPE) but no matter what their score is the lowest possible level they will be placed in is 102 (second semester).
Only students who are choosing a language not studied in High School will start at the 101 level.
The score will determine the placement level (102, 201, 202, etc.) for a student’s modern language study at The Citadel.
Those students who would like to begin a new language—one not previously studied—will need to request a waiver from the Placement Test by writing to email@example.com by August 1st. Students who wish to study Chinese do not need to request a waiver.
The Language Placement Test will be given online starting May 2nd. Complete all placement tests by August 1st.
