The CWLC provides undergraduate placement tests and proficiency tests for both undergraduate and graduate students.
Undergraduate placement tests—free for students—are designed to optimize learning by placing first-year and transfer students into the most appropriate language course based on their level.
Proficiency tests evaluate what the students can do in a given language in terms of speaking, writing, listening and reading. Some programs at the undergraduate and graduate levels require students to demonstrate proficiency in a second language through these tests.
For your convenience, both placement and proficiency tests can be taken at any time during the year and are self-scheduled.
