Portuguese Language Placement

If you have previous knowledge of Portuguese and would like to continue your studies, you must take the written and oral placement exam. The exam is based on the material covered in the Elementary Portuguese course, PORT 101-1, 2, 3 and the Intermediate Portuguese course, PORT 115-1, 2. The completion of the Intermediate course with a grade of C- or better satisfies the WCAS Language Proficiency requirement. 

After students take the online Placement Exam, they will receive an email for a Zoom interview. They will be reassessed during this interview.

No campus interview or exam will take place.
