Did you take Arabic, Chinese, French, German, Japanese, Latin, or Spanish classes in high school? If so, you can earn up to 12–14 free credits at Ball State by taking our World Language Placement Exam and earning a grade of C or better in the language course where you are placed.
You’ll receive information about this opportunity after you have been admitted to Ball State and confirmed your enrollment. Plan to take the free exam if you’re considering the following areas of study:
- world language major or minor
- elementary education major (modern languages concentration)
- English major
- international business major or minor
- media major or minor
- music performance major (voice concentration)
- political science major
If you receive Advanced Placement (AP), International Baccalaureate (IB), or dual credit in a language, you should not take this exam. If you have experience in American Sign Language, you may pursue testing options once you start your first semester at Ball State.
