Language Placement

A few things to consider:

  • Ohio University offers 16 world languages through the Department of Modern Languages, Linguistics, and the Center for International Studies.
  • Students who wish to continue taking a language at Ohio University must take a Language Placement Test. Students will have the opportunity to take a Language Placement Test at Orientation. After Orientation, students can take the placement exam in the Gordy Hall computer lab. Additional information is available on the Modern Languages website.
  • If you require accommodations for placement testing as a student with a disability, please contact Student Accessibility Services at 740.593.2620 or disabilities@ohio.edu

Placements are not exemptions. Each of the placement tests is designed to identify the course in which a student should begin. A placement does not exempt a student from a required course.
