Elementary Language Courses

Students who have begun language study in high school must take a placement test to determine whether they should enroll in a first-year (101), first-year review (103), or a second-year language course. We also recommend that students who began language study at another college or university take the placement test. Please check the Evaluations & Examinations website (http://www.umich.edu/~eande/place/sched.htm) for placement test dates and locations.

Demand for elementary language courses can be high, and students may not be able to enroll in the class of their choosing. Please see your general academic advisor for help in electing courses.

Attendance in elementary language courses is mandatory. Students who miss either of the first two meetings of the class may be dropped from the course by the department, to allow other students to register.
