If your intended major requires a foreign language (or you wish to take a foreign language course as an elective) and you plan to take French, German or Spanish to meet that requirement, you must take the Clemson Foreign Language Placement Test (FLPT) before registering for a foreign language course. Even if you take an AP or IB exam or the SAT II test, you are still required to take the FLPT. You do not have to take the FLPT if you are beginning a new language in which you have no background.
The foreign language tests will take approximately one hour to complete. On the first day of orientation, you will receive a recommendation about the initial foreign language course that you should enroll in at Clemson. Results will be given during an orientation session, not through the language department Any transfer student who is bringing in credit for a foreign language and plans to continue in that same language is NOT required to take the Foreign Language Placement Text.
You do not need to register for the placement test. Please just show up at the correct time and date.
The tests will be given on the following dates:
Monday, January 7, 2008, at 10:00 a.m. & 1:00 p.m.
French 213 Daniel Hall
If you have questions, please call the Department of Languages at (864) 656-3393 or (864) 656-3122.
