Arabic Program Information: https://mena.northwestern.edu/undergraduate/languages/arabic.html
If you have had prior instruction in Arabic or have learned Arabic informally, or at home, we hope you will resume your study of Arabic at Northwestern University. To make sure you are in the appropriate class, we ask you to take the Arabic placement exam online. Once you have taken the Arabic placement exam, and the test is processed, you will find your results posted online.
Your results will indicate in which class you should enroll. Please remember that you must enroll in the class indicated. If you choose to register for Arabic at a lower level than that indicated, except with special permission of the department in writing, you will be considered to be duplicating your training in Arabic and will be denied credit. You may however register for a class higher than that indicated with permission of the department.
