Spanish Placement Exam


All freshmen in the College of Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences and Natural and Agricultural Sciences who wish to meet their foreign language breadth requirement with the same language taken in high school must take a placement examination.

The Spanish placement exam is a proficiency-oriented exam designed to place the student in the most appropriate course. The exam does not yield unit credit; it determines whether the foreign language requirement has been met, and if not, it determines in which course a student should enroll.

Placement test dates and registration information are available at https://chassintranet.ucr.edu/pta. You must register for an exam through this website.
