All students, without exception, who wish to enroll in a language course at Webster University for the first time and have high school or college credits in that language MUST take a Placement Test.
Students should register in the class indicated by the placement test results. If, after attending the first days of class, the student feels s/he has been placed too low or too high, s/he should discuss the issue with the instructor or the specific language coordinator to determine if a change is appropriate and to arrange the change as needed. Students placing at a high intermediate or an advanced level may be required to take an additional test to determine the correct level. Please contact the ILC Department (314-9687047) for more information regarding this advanced placement test and to set up an appointment to take it.
The regular placement Test can be taken at the Academic Resource Center in Loretto Hall. It is free and an appointment is not required. It takes less than one hour to complete.
"Language Recognition Credit" is designed for new students who already have proficiency in a second language. Students who enroll in their first language course (other than beginning level I) at Webster, and complete the course with a grade of B or better (not B-), will be awarded recognition credit. Up to 12 recognition credit hours can be earned. These credit hours are the same as would be awarded if the student took the corresponding course. These credit hours also share the same general education coding (Cultural Understanding) as the corresponding courses. Please contact the department for more information.
