The French Department requires new students to take a placement test in order to best assess the level of learning experience at Yale University.

All students who have not yet studied French at Yale and who did not take the placement exam within the past 12 months are expected to take the placement exam before enrolling in a spring term course.

Students currently enrolled in courses from Fren110 through Fren140 should not take the test. They are expected to continue with the next course in the sequence.

The Department strongly recommends that students who earned a score of 5 on the Advanced Placement exam, a 6 or 7 on the Advanced-Level International Baccalaureate (IB) exam, a Common European Framework rating of C1 , or an A or B on the GCE A-Level exam take the placement exam in order to be directed to the most appropriate course and thus save precious time during Shopping Period.

Once you know your appropriate course level, you must preregister during online Preregistration/ Preference Selection (see below).

NOTE: If your Placement Level is L1 or L2, you will have to wait until next fall to enroll in a course. Fren 120 is open only to students who took Fren 110. Fren 121 is not offered this semester.
