There is a Placement Exam for Chinese, French, German, and Spanish, but not Russian. It is designed to help students who have taken language classes in high school or at other universities/colleges determine which course they should begin with here at BYU-Idaho, based on their ability. Students with prior Russian experience should contact the Russian faculty for more information.
The Placement Exam is not for returned missionaries. Chinese-, French-, German-, and Russian-speaking returned missionaries should begin at the 202 level. Spanish-speaking returned missionaries should begin at the 302 level.
