Proficiency Exam 

For more information contact:

Please send an email inquiry. We will respond promptly.

LSP 121 Proficiency exam is now administered online. Due to the complexity of administering online tests and a high volume of requests at the beginning of the quarter, we are only able to administer these tests to graduating seniors during the two-week period before and the two weeks after the start of each quarter.

Therefore, if you are enrolled in LSP 121 and are seriously interested in taking the proficiency exam, but you are not a graduating senior, unfortunately we are unable to offer it to you two weeks before and two weeks after the start of the quarter. Your options therefore are: 1) take the LSP 120 class or 2) drop the class and schedule to take the proficiency exam after the first two weeks of the quarter.

Proficiency exams will only be offered Monday through Friday 9 am through 5 pm CST, subject to the availability of time slots.
