Students who have never studied Arabic before nor lived in an Arabic-speaking country/home, should sign up for Arabic 101.
If you have previously studied Arabic anywhere (elementary, middle or high school or another college/university) or if you learned Arabic by living in an Arabic-speaking country or home and do not have transfer credit, you must take the UIC placement test.
Transfer students with Arabic 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
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 Arabic Basic Language Coordinator.
Only the Coordinator can authorize changes. All changes must be completed by the end of add/drop.
