The Italian program does not currently offer a placement test. However, the general rule of thumb is that two years of High School Italian equal to about one year of college Italian.

Use the chart below for some general guidance:

Never have taken Italian Before = Register for ITL 101
One Year of High School Italian = Register for ITL 101
Two Years of High School Italian = Register for ITL 102
Three Years of High School Italian = Register for ITL 201
Four Years of High School Italian = Register for ITL 202

If you have had previous experience or education in this language and are not sure about which course you should enroll in, please talk to the language advisor prior to enrolling in a language course. The language advisor would be able to interview briefly and recommend a best placement based on your written, spoken, listening, literary, and cultural competence.
