If you have taken Chinese, French, German, Italian or Spanish in high school, you must take a Language Placement Assessment in each of the languages you studied – even if you plan to study a different language at Stonehill. Exams are due by June 1, 2022.

You may continue with a language you have previously studied, at the appropriate level, as determined by our placement formula. However, you are not required to continue with the same language.

You may also choose to satisfy the College's general education language requirement by taking the elementary level of a different language, including Chinese, French, German, Italian or Spanish.
