A student's green pen is poised over the Language Placement Test.

Here are the instructions, requirements, dates and times, and other details about language placement testing.

Taking the Language Placement Test

Our language placement tests assist Institute professors in placing students in appropriate language classes. Administered online, the language placement tests are required for new and returning students who have not taken language courses at MIIS in the previous semester to able to enroll in language courses.

New Students with a Language Requirement

Please take the test for your declared language of study (LOS). This is the language you chose on your application form to pursue as part of your degree program. You can take more than one language test if you wish to enroll in language courses in more than one language or to apply to change your LOS. Please complete the test within the testing window listed below, or your class registration will be delayed until your language test results are received. Placement test results are only honored for the particular semester in which the test is taken. Students not enrolled in language study for one or more semesters must retake the language placement test before receiving approval for a related language course.
