About all three Placement Exams:

To take any placement examination in the Romance Languages, you must sign up online at the following URL on or after February 25th:

Please be sure to sign up online because these exams are not given by appointment. Although not timed, each exam takes approximately one hour. You are welcome to walk in within the 2-hour time frame, but allow yourself enough time to finish before the end time. You will receive an e-mail confirming you have registered for the exam. If you cannot attend, you must cancel at least 24 hours before the date of your exam.

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

About the French and 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 Placement Exams:

Like the French and Spanish exams, the Italian exam includes a writning sample and multiple-choice questions, but it is not computer-adaptive.


All examinations are held in the Chanin Language Center (209 Hunter West).

Who should take the test?

You are encouraged to take advantage of this opportunity if you need to fulfill the language requirement (or the Common Core and Hunter Focus) and if any of the following considerations apply to you:

    • have one of these languages in high school.
    • some time has passed since your last foreign language course.
    • you have some knowledge of the language but never studied it formally.
    • you have had additional exposure to the language through family, school, travel or work connections.


Results are usually posted within two days of the test on the Department of Romance Languages Bulletin Board, opposite Room 1343 Hunter West. Please DO NOT call the Chanin Language Center for your results.

Please Note:

Placement Exams in French, Italian and Spanish are scheduled, proctored and evaluated by the Department of Romance Languages. Please contact Professor Alicia Ramos at for additional inquiries.
