Students who have never studied German before nor lived in a German-speaking country/home, should sign up for German 101.

If you have previously studied German anywhere (elementary, middle or high school or another college/university) or if you learned German by living in a German-speaking country or home and do not have AP credit, you must take the UIC placement test.

Students with AP credit for German or transfer students with German credit from another college/university should consult their advisor.

Note: Students may only take the placement test once per year.

What do I do if the class I placed into is too easy/hard Heading link

Students must register for the course into which they are placed.

If you have concerns about your placement, you should speak with your instructor and contact the Director for the German Basic Language Program.

Only the Director can authorize changes. All changes must be completed by the end of add/drop.
