Language Requirement

Language Requirement

Simmons students, with the exception of Dix Scholars and international students from non-English speaking countries, are required to demonstrate language proficiency at the intermediate level. Students may take up to three semesters of a modern language (through 201) in order to fulfill the requirement.  Students with previous study of a language offered at Simmons must take a placement test in the Center for Academic Achievement to be properly placed.

In addition, students can fulfill the requirement with a score of a 3,4, or 5 on an Advanced Placement language exam, a score of 560 or above on an SAT II Language Test, or by passing a test given at Simmons indicating mastery of the third semester of a language. The Center for Academic Achievement will provide language placement tests to students for the purposes of placement and/or fulfillment of the language requirement.
