Foreign Language (FL) Placement Coordinators

Coordinators are teaching faculty in the Modern Languages & Literatures Department. They will help you determine which course is the best for you, given your previous experience with the language, either in a classroom or outside of one. Coordinators may base their placement recommendation on an interview (by phone or in person) and/or quiz and/or short writing sample.

Summer Freshmen Orientations

During summer freshmen orientation sessions, FL coordinators will vary. At least one will be present during course registration.
