Take the Language Placement Test to Earn Free Credit

If you studied Arabic, Chinese, French, German, Japanese, Latin, or Spanish in high school and want to continue taking classes in that language at Ball State, you should take the placement test prior to enrolling in a language course. The test will allow you to enroll in a course that meets your skill level, and as long as you complete that course with a C or higher, you will receive credit for all lower-level courses.
