The Mathematics Placement Exam
English Proficiency Requirements
Foreign Language Requirement
Placement: A student who wishes to continue with the language he began in high school will be placed by the faculty of that language on the basis of their evaluation of his high school preparation. While our placement will take into account both the quantity and quality (grades) in previous language study, students who have had at least two years of high school language will normally be placed into our third semester course or higher. Students who start in the third semester course or higher (201 or 301) and completes that course with a B- or better also receives one elective credit for the course immediately preceding the one he has taken.
A student may, of course, begin a new language at Wabash. Our beginning courses assume no background in the language.
