Foreign Language Placement and Proficiency Assessments

The foreign language placement assessment process assists students in selecting course placement or test options to fulfill their foreign language proficiency requirement at APU. Students are encouraged to take a foreign language self-assessment, WebCAPE, at home to gauge their level of foreign language experience prior to taking a proficiency exam. For students who demonstrate a level of proficiency in a foreign language, there are three test options to consider for fulfillment of the APU foreign language proficiency requirement: CLEP, FLATS, and OPIc.
