I understand that Simmons College is undertaking initiatives to promote the College, its schools and programs. I give Simmons College permission:

  • To use, re-use, publish and re-publish, in whole or in part, the photographs or video of me or in which I am included, in any medium, without restrictions as to changes or alterations, in conjunction with the representation of Simmons College;
  • To use my name in connection therewith if Simmons College so chooses.

Language Placement

Students who wish to begin studying a new language do not need to take a placement exam; they may simply enroll into the 101 course in their language of choice. All students who wish to continue taking a language that they have previously studied must take a placement exam to ensure that you are in the appropriate level. Placement exams for French, Spanish and Mandarin Chinese are now being offered via the web throughout the summer. Students who feel that they want to place out of the language requirement must take a proctored placement exam on campus.

Please let us know what your current intentions are for the language requirement at Simmons. (You can always change your mind, but this information will be helpful to us in planning for the placement exams).

Note: Dix Scholars do not need to complete this section.

Please note: Parent's Orientation is only offered during the overnight orientations.
