Italian Placement Exam


Please take this exam if you have any background in speaking or reading Italian and you are considering continuing to study it at Manhattanville to fulfill your language requirement. You need not take it if you have never studied this language.

For students who have studied Italian in high school, or who have some background in both speaking and writing in Italian, a short placement exam will be available for you to take when you come to campus for Orientation. Please check your Orientation schedule carefully for the time and location. Your class registration can then be adjusted to allow you to take the appropriate level of Italian. Normally within 48 hours,placement scores and their Manhattananville course equivalencies (if applicable) will appear in your WebAdvisor account. Click the "Placement Exams, Non Course and Transfer Course Equivalencies" link.

* NOTE: The Italian placement exam is currently administered using a paper exam. An online version will be available in Blackboard later in Spring 2014.
