Any student who is thinking of studying a language previously studied in high school should take the exam, regardless of the language requirements for the student's chosen major.
Yes. We will look at any available scores when determining your placement. We generally use your highest score when determining your placement.
The use of outside assistance of any kind is prohibited when taking the placement exam. This includes assistance obtained through electronic or other means such as websites, dictionaries, textbooks, other individuals, etc. It would be to your disadvantage to use outside assistance since doing so might place you into a higher course for which you would not be properly prepared. Moreover, using outside assistance would also be a violation of the Valparaiso University Honor Code: "I have neither given or received nor have I tolerated others' use of unauthorized aid."
If you plan to study a new language at Valpo (one that you did not study in high school), you do not need to take the exam for that language. You should consult with a faculty member within your major or the General Catalog to find out the General Education requirements for your degree program
