Do you have prior knowledge in French, German and/or Spanish,. . . but earned no college credit for it yet?
Why? Because these exams offer you the great, but ONE-TIME-ONLY chance of
BE THERE OR BE SQUARE!!! This opportunity will not come around again until next August!!!
IMPORTANT: you really must/should take this exam no matter whether you are planning on pursuing any of these languages at Franciscan University and no matter whether your current major has a language requirement. Why? Because plans and majors change more often than you think! What if you suddenly decide to add a major that has a language requirement? -- Well, hopefully, you'll be dancing for joy that you took the paper-based "testing-out/placement" exams in French, German, Ancient Greek and Latin during Orientation!!!
Always keep in mind that, as a rule, we administer the paper-based "testing-out/placement" exams in French, German, Greek, Latin and Spanish ONCE A YEAR ONLY, and that is during ORIENTATION in August! In other words, don't miss out on this one-time-only opportunity. Besides, you have NOTHING TO LOSE, ONLY TO GAIN by taking the paper-based "testing-out/placement" exam in French, German, Ancient Greek, Latin and/or Spanish*!
*Note: Students with prior knowledge in Spanish should/must take our SPANISH ONLINE Placement Exam first / PRIOR TO ARRIVAL ON CAMPUS -- see below -- to prequalify for the paper-based "testing out/placement exam" during August Orientation. If your score is high enough, you'll be asked to take the paper-based "testing-out/placement exam," which is given during August Orientation ONLY. So, be prudent: 1) take the Online Spanish Placement Exam A.S.A.P. for your chance to prequalify for your personal one-time-only opportunity in August to test out of the Intermediate-level foreign language requirement and/or into upper-division Spanish and 2) if invited, be sure to take the paper-based Spanish "testing-out/placement" exam during August Orientation!!!

Class of 2006Major: Spanish
The summer before he graduated from Franciscan University in 2006 with a degree in Spanish, David Hickson graduated from Marine Officer Candidate School. He knew exactly what he was going to be: a Marine Officer. But after much time in prayer and struggling to find peace, he realized that he simply couldn’t kill other human beings. He turned down his commission and thought he was going to the seminary to be a Navy chaplain, but he didn’t find peace that route either. Then, Hickson decided to follow in his parents’ footsteps and teach.
