Placement and Proficiency

  • In general, placement depends on the overall proficiency of the student and on what was accomplished in previous French courses.  A student entering KU with no previous French should enroll in FREN 110.
  • Students with past course work/experience in French should take a placement test before enrolling. This can be done in EGARC, (4070 Wescoe Hall) or online. After completing the placement test, students should email their scores to the French Language Coordinator in the Department of French and Italian to determine which French course is appropriate.
  • Students needing proficiency examinations for study abroad programs, the Dean's Certificate in International Business, or graduate school requirements should also contact the French Language Coordinator, to arrange for the necessary testing.
