Spanish placement exams are valid for one year. If you took a placement exam prior to January 1, 2021, or if you need to confirm your Spanish language placement level, the placement exam will be available in early February for students applying to a Spanish language YSS Program Abroad.

Contact Professor María Vázquez ( to arrange a placement exam between February 1 and February 14.

Students who do not have a valid placement by the YSS Programs Abroad deadline of February 15 will not be eligible for a Spanish language YSS Program Abroad in 2022.

Note: Students who have met their intended program’s pre-requisite by either receiving a 5 on the AP Spanish exam, a 6 on the high-level IB exam, or having taken a Spanish course(s) on campus do not need to take a placement exam, regardless of the amount of time that has passed.
