World Languages and Cultural Studies

Language Placement Exam

The Language Placement Exam is available on-line through the college’s Blackboard Academic Suite.  Please refer to your welcome letter sent to you via mail for your log-in information.

Please remember that you are required to take the Language Placement Exam only in languages you have already studied and that you wish to continue studying!

For First-Year Students:

The deadline to complete the exam has been extended to June 16th. If the exam isn’t completed by this deadline, you will have to take time out of June orientation to finish it. We encourage you to get it done at home! 

For Transfer Students:

Please refer to the Transfer Credit Evaluation Sheet which was sent to you by the Admissions Office; this document reflects the courses that Merrimack College has already accepted in transfer as well as any that may still be under review.  If transferred credits have already fulfilled your language requirement, or if you plan to start a new language at Merrimack, you do not have to take the language placement exam.
