Placement and Registration
If you have prior experience with French, German, or Spanish and wish to register for a course, please use our web-based placement tool to determine which level suits you best. Students who have never had exposure to or instruction in the language should register for the 101-level courses.
Only take the online placement exam if you are a current Harper student who has previous experience in French, German or Spanish and wish to enroll in a course in that language at Harper for the first time.
The placement tool is available only for French, German, and Spanish. If you wish to take an upper-level Chinese or Japanese course, please contact the department chairperson, Kimberly Jaeger, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Note: Placement exams are NOT proficiency exams used to obtain academic credit. See our list of Frequently Asked Questions for more information.
There are three steps to follow to register for a French, German or Spanish course above the 101-level, if you have not taken courses in the language at Harper already:
- Take the Harper College World Languages Placement Exam.
- Apply for a Registration Override to allow you to register for your class.
- Once your override is approved, you may register for your course.
