1. When? The Spanish Proficiency Exam is offered every Fall and spring semesters, around three weeks before the last week of classes. This Fall 2011 semester, the exam will be administered on November 15th and 17th, 2011. The sign-up period to register for the exam will take place during October 17th – 21th, 2011 2. How? The sign-up period to register for the exam will take place during October 17th -21th, 2011. You have to come to the Spanish and Portuguese Department (ICC, 4th floor) to sign up (the sheets are located at the front desk). Expect a message from the program administrators with instructions and relevant information after you register. **Students who do not arrive 20 minutes before their scheduled exam time, or who do not show up at all, will have to pay a $25 fee when you register for the second time. If you wish to cancel an exam time, please do so at least 10 days in advance.

3. Who? The Spanish proficiency exams are administered ONLY undergraduate students in the School of Foreign Service.

This is relevant information regarding who can sign up to take the exams:

1. Students who plan to go abroad in one of the two summer programs for which the Spanish & Portuguese Department is responsible will take the exam at the end of the program. The two programs that offer exams are Quito and Barcelona; they offer exams to SFS students the evening prior to the last day of classes for the program.

2. Students who spend at least one semester abroad in a direct matriculation program do not need to take the exam.

3. Students who are currently registered in any of the four sections of Oral Review (Span161) will take the exam on the day assigned by the registrar's office for the final exam. The faculty of record and another faculty member will administer the exam.

4. Oral Review prepares the students for the Proficiency Exam which will complete their language requirement for graduation. Students may first attempt to take the Proficiency Exam after completion of Advanced 102 or Intensive Advanced 112 (Latin America in Context) with a grade of B+ or higher in BOTH Advanced 101 and 102. Students in Advanced 2 need their instructor's WRITTEN permission confirming that on average, at time of exam registration, the students' grade in Advanced 102 or 112 is at least a  B+ . Students who fail the exam must pay the $25 fee and complete SPAN 161 or above before retaking it. This means that students must plan well ahead and attempt to to pass the exam two semesters before graduation at the latest.
