Placement and Examination


Students who have had several years of high-school French should take the French placement exam. The written test takes about 30 minutes and will indicate which French class students are qualified to take at Indiana State.

Depending on placement, students may qualify for credit by exam. If, for example, the student tests into third-semester French (FREN 201) and completes third-semester French at Indiana State with a C+ grade or better, the student can earn credit for third-semester French AND second and first-semester French—a possible total of 9 credit hours for one course!

The placement test is given on campus at Erickson Hall, Room 231. The hours are Tuesday and Thursday, from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. and on Wednesday and Friday, from 8:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. Space is limited, so it is best to make an appointment. Call 812-237-7666.
