Language Challenge exams are offered to current Seattle University students to determine which language class is appropriate. While the successful completion of these exams may satisfy all or part of the one year of proficiency in a modern language requirement for the College of Arts & Sciences, no Seattle University credit is awarded.
The 1000 level Proctored Online Spanish Challenge Exam is regularly offered three times per quarter during the academic year and on some additional dates during the summer. Registration for each date is closed one week before every exam. Please make sure to download the Spanish Challenge Exam Study Guide to prepare for the test.

Students can test out of the college's requirement for one year of proficiency in a foreign language. If the language the student would like to test out of is not offered at Seattle University, the student can take a proficiency exam at another academic institution and send their scores to the Department of Modern Languages and Cultures.
Please contact our department's administrative assistant, Noelle Hardman, at firstname.lastname@example.org, with any questions about waiving the Modern Language requirement in a language that is not offered at Seattle University.
