Second Language Assessment

Students with previous training or experience in a second language who do not have advanced placement or college credit are required to take a Second Language Assessment before enrolling in a language course. There is an online placement test for Chinese, Russian, French, German and Spanish and these online, self-proctored exams can be taken at any time. No proctor is required.

To request access to the placement exam, contact the main office of the World Languages and Cultures Program, 210 Kidder Hall, 541-737-2146 or email wlc.placementexam@oregonstate.edu Students will need to provide their OSU ID number.

Students without previous training or experience in a second language are highly encouraged to start their second language requirement in their freshman year as only a limited number of seats are available and courses fill quickly. World Languages cannot guarantee accommodation and on-time graduation for students delaying the completion of their language requirement.

Ecampus students: Email wlc.placementexam@oregonstate.edu for information, a testing link and access code. You will need to provide your OSU ID. If you do not know your OSU ID number, please contact the Office of the Registrar or Admissions.

Mathematics Assessment and Placement

All first-year Corvallis campus students must take the ALEKS Mathematics Placement Test prior to START (new student orientation and advising). Transfer students and Ecampus students should consult with their academic advisor to determine their course placement and testing requirements. More information is available on the Math website.

Please consult with your academic advisor for the appropriate mathematics courses for your degree program. Descriptions of mathematics courses are given in the OSU Academic Catalog.
