ASL placement exams are conducted in real time with two ASL instructors, rather than via computer as with many other placement exams. An ASL placement exam is only necessary if you are interested in testing out of beginning levels of ASL. If you choose to begin your ASL studies with ASL Level One, a placement exam is not required. You do not need an ASL placement exam before attending New Student Orientation (NSO).
NOTE: Sophomore standing (30 credits) is required to take any ASL course.
To schedule a placement exam, contact the ASL program at: firstname.lastname@example.org. You may email at any time to get on the list to schedule a placement exam. Please do not wait until you are ready to enroll to attempt to schedule a placement exam.
