Placement Exam

Students who wish to enroll in a Japanese language course beyond the 11111 level must take a placement examination administered by the Department.

Students with prior experience of Japanese are advised to take the placement examination before registering for a language class.

Students who do not take the first semester of beginning Japanese must take a placement test before registering for a second semester course.

Students who are taking a language sequence (in Japanese) at Notre Dame and sit out for a semester or more of course work are required to take a placement exam in order to continue their study of the language.
