To take the test, please contact the First-Year Advisement Centre in Student Services, in the W. A. Murphy Student Centre. During the summer months, the test is available online.
Shortly after completion of the Placement Test, you will be contacted by the Department of Modern Languages and notified of the appropriate course in which to enroll.
For further information, contact the Department of Modern Languages at (902)566-0480.
