Language Placement Exams

If you have registered for COLLT (Cornell On-Line Language Tests) at collt.lrc.cornell.edu and were told you should take the CASE, then simply come to the next available CASE session in your language (see schedule below). Otherwise, you must register in COLLT.  The online survey form will help you determine your situation and offer an online test or other recommendation.  Be sure to fill out the survey questionnaire for each language in which you need placement. If you have any questions please contact Cal Hile.

The online tests (LPF, LPI, LPS) are for students who have never taken a course in the language at Cornell. For internal language students, standard sequencing of courses applies.

If you are currently enrolled in 1220, the LP given at the end of the course will provide you with the placement information you need. In the meantime, we recommend that you tentatively pre-enroll for a course at the level you think might be right. Once you get your LP placement, if it is different than you expected, you can switch courses as soon as online add/drop begins.
