These exams are available only to students enrolled at Hunter at the present time. Bring your Hunter ID card to show as you enter and have your EMPL ID# & netID on hand. Also, bring a pen or a pencil for the writing sample.

About the French & Spanish Placement Exams: These are computer adaptive exams consisting of multiple-choice questions, plus a writing sample. They are administered on a first-come first-serve basis. If all the computer stations are in use when you arrive, please be prepared to wait.

About the Italian & Portuguese Placement Exams: Like the French and Spanish exams, the Italian & Portuguese exams include a writing sample and multiple-choice questions, but it is not computer-adaptive.

  • you have one of these languages in high school,
  • some time has passed since your last foreign language course,
