Language Testing and Competency

Language Placement Testing

Placement tests help place you in the appropriate language class. These tests do not exempt you from taking classes nor do they give you credit. They are a guide to help you get into the right level and are required at Wheaton. We offer placement tests in French, German, Greek, Hebrew, Latin, Mandarin Chinese, and Spanish. Learn more >

Core Language Competency Requirements

All Wheaton students have a language requirement, but there are several ways to meet your Core Language Competency Requirement by demonstrating linguistic proficiency in a modern or classical language. You can take a language course at Wheaton, transfer credit in, or demonstrate competency through testing such as the AP test or the SAT. Learn more >
