This just in from Dr. Ben Withers, Associate Provost for Undergraduate Education:
Students who want to satisfy the language requirement in a language not taught at the University of Kentucky may take a proficiency test for this purpose.
There are proficiency tests available for several languages. A list of those languages can be found on the page “Testing for Languages not Taught at UK” on the UGE website (www.uky.edu/UGE/language-testing.html). Cost per test varies by provider; information about costs is on the website.
Tests are offered twice a year, on the second Friday in October and on the first Friday in March, between 1 p.m. and 4 p.m.
Before arranging for a test, students must consult with their College or Departmental advisor about the policy for proficiency testing as a means to satisfy the language requirement in their majors. Students must register and pay all fees for the tests at least three weeks before the date they intend to take the test. The student is responsible for paying all costs associated with the test.
To arrange for a test, contact Liliana Drucker (email@example.com, 257-5723), Department of Modern and Classical Languages, Literatures and Cultures, 1055 Patterson Office Tower. There is also an on-line form, available through links on the UGE page and also on the MCL site (http://mcl.as.uky.edu/language-test-sign-form).
