Spanish Placement Exam

HBU Spanish Placement Tests provide well-prepared students with an opportunity to qualify for a Spanish course for which they would not otherwise be eligible. Note that course credit will NOT be awarded for any course based on the results of these tests; they simply provide students with the opportunity to qualify for a more advanced course without the necessity of taking one or more lower level courses first.

Students are eligible to take any Spanish course for which they have completed the course prerequisites as listed in the HBU Catalog or shown in the following table with grades of C or higher or for which they have passed a Spanish placement test.
IMPORTANT: The placement test results only indicate which course or courses a student is eligible to take. Students should always consult with their academic advisors to see which Spanish courses they need to take for their specific major or program requirements.

Heritage Spanish Credit by Examination is a test that grants students credit based on prior proficiency in Spanish. Students who are proficient in Spanish to previous study or native ability may pursue a Spanish major or minor on the Advanced Spanish track. To be in this track students are required to take the Spanish Heritage Exam at the testing center.
