UMW Language Requirement and Language Placement


We offer language placement testing in Arabic, Chinese, French, German, Italian and Spanish approximately a month ahead of First year and Transfer orientations. You will be messaged directly with instructions on how to take the exam at home. For matriculated UMW students, we offer proctored placement and exemption testing a few times a year in time for the fall and spring registration periods. Please see MyUMW and search “Language Placement” to sign up for the next exam.
