Testing calendar for the 2020 - 2021 academic year

New students

New students will have the opportunity to take the exam during Orientation week as a part of their introduction to campus. Specific test times will be determined by students’ orientation schedule. Please scroll below to "register for the exam," and do so at least 1 week in advance of the test date.

Returning students

Returning students will have several opportunities to take the Foreign Language Proficiency Exam during the 2019-20 academic year. 

Students who wish to take the Foreign Language Proficiency Exam are advised to do so as soon as possible. With languages, you use it or you lose it: those students who studied a language in high school but waited until their junior or senior year at Puget Sound to take the exam typically do not do well. The longer you wait to take the exam, the less likely you are to pass and the more likely you are to risk delaying your graduation. 

While the Center for Writing, Learning, and Teaching proctors all foreign language proficiency exams on campus, these exams are provided by outside contractors and sent away for grading. As a result, some exams must be ordered for students in advance.  In order to allow ample time for exams to arrive, please sign up for a testing date at least 1 week in advance. Last-minute test requests cannot always be accommodated and you may have to wait until the next test date. 

*it is currently uncertain wether or not tests will be able to be administered in person or if they will be virtual*
