Modern Language Placement Test

If your intended major requires a modern language (or if you wish to take a modern language course as an elective) and you plan to take French, German or Spanish to meet that requirement, you must take the Clemson Modern Language Placement Test (FLPT) before registering for a modern language course. Even if you take an AP or IB exam or the SAT II test, you are still required to take the FLPT.


Students of all LAIB and L&IH majors are required to complete internship before graduation.
