Foreign Language Equivalencies

For languages for which a CLEP or AP test is not available, an Oral Proficiency Interview may provide the student opportunity to prove proficiency in the language and receive academic credit as outlined in the table below.  The proficiency levels are those established by the American Council for the Teaching of Foreign Language.

Click here for testing services which are available through Language Testing International. Once on the site, click on the test candidate link in the upper right hand corner. Then click on the "Click here to apply for a test" under Test Candidates. You will be directed to set up your own account through the Language Testing site. This will allow you to both apply for the test and to receive your rating once complete. On the application page, be sure to enter George Fox in the search field.
