Language Placement Test
If you have previously studied a language and would like to continue at Babson, you will need to take a language placement test prior to entering a course. For French and Spanish, this is an on-line, timed test. This test can be taken from your home computer.
You are bound by the honor code in taking this test. The Director of Languages and Global Cultures or another professor will contact you by email promptly following the test to inform you of your placement. The Director will also contact the Registrar with the appropriate waiver. The link to the test can be found here along with instructions.
