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