PLACEMENT TEST POLICY (FOREIGN LANGUAGES)
We want students to progress as rapidly as possible in their chosen language. Please do not sign up for FRN 101 or SPA 101 if you have studied the language for years in high school, or lived overseas. Instead, take our free online placement test. After reading the information below, click on the Testing Center link and you can begin the test. If you feel you need to talk with someone before taking the exam, you can contact Dr. Philip Krummrich at 606-783-2582 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
On the basis of the placement test results and/or the conversation with Dr. Krummrich, we will recommend the right class for you. The chart below gives you an idea based on your score what class we might recommend. If you begin in a class above the first-semester level—for example, if you begin in FRN or SPA 201—we will give you credit for the classes you have skipped as soon as you pass the class you take. Thus, if you take and pass FRN 201, you will receive nine hours of credit for FRN 101, 102, and 201, and be well on your way to a major or minor. You will also have moved forward in the language, instead of wasting your time repeating material you already know.
There are two additional ways of earning credit for classes in French or Spanish without taking the classes. They are:
1. Take the CLEP examination, available in the Testing Center.
2. Present evidence to the Testing Center, GH 501, of a satisfactory score on the AP examination.
Students can take the Placement Tests at any time. For instructions on how to access the examination site:
• Go to the following site: Testing Center.
• Put in this user ID: morehead user (all lower case)
• Put in this password: eagles1 (all lower case)
The student’s score will automatically be sent to MSU and to the e-mail address the student enters at the test site within a few minutes of completing the exam.
Amigos Unidos (Spanish Club)
The Spanish Club, "Amigos Unidos," is a campus organization that has as its mission to help students enhance their ability to learn Spanish outside of the classroom.

"Amigos Unidos" is aware of the current globalization trends and of the increasing importance of learning Spanish in our society, that's why the club encourages hardworking, passionate, and dedicated students to be part of its membership.
