Please submit this request within the first two weeks of the fall or spring semester in which you wish to take an Elliott School coordinated language proficiency exam.
All students must take the on-line language diagnostic exam and include a screen shot of the diagnostic exam results in their request to take an Elliott School coordinated language exam.
Your request will be reviewed by the language coordinator and they will email you with a decision within 5-7 business days.
If your request is approved, you will receive emails regarding steps you must take to sign up for both the in-person speaking and reading portions of the exam. It is important that you read all of these emails and register and sign up for your exams within all of the stated deadlines, otherwise you will not be able to sit for the exams for that semester.
