Frequently Asked Questions

How do I take the Italian or Japanese placement tests?

We currently do not have a placement test for these two languages.  Students who wish to continue with Italian and Japanese  and have had two years of that language in high school with an average grade of “B” or better should register for 120. Entering students with three years of the same foreign language in high school with a "B" or better average may go directly into 130.

I am not planning on taking a foreign language next semester.  Do you still recommend that I take the placement exam?

Yes.  Although you are not required to take a foreign language during your first year at Coastal, it is highly recommended that you continue with the language while it is still fresh in your memory.  It may be the course that fits perfectly into your schedule.

I took a placement test at another university.  May I send you their results?

We currently do not accept placement test scores from other universities. 

I forgot to print my results.  Can I retrieve them?  Should I retake the test?

You can not retrieve your placement test scores after you hit the submit button.  You may contact the Foreign Language Instructional Center Coordinator, Patience Locke @ 843-349-2478 for further instructions.
