Unless you have never studied or been exposed to the Chinese language, you will need to take a placement test to determine the level at which you should begin your foreign language course work.
You can complete the test any time and e-mail your answers to Professor Yu Feng, director of the Chinese Language Program. He will give you course suggestions prior to registration. If you would like to place out, you must take this test as well as a composition test at the end of August or the beginning of September.
