The Department of Asian Studies will be suspending the Vietnamese language program beginning in the fall 2010 semester. In order to accommodate students who have background in Vietnamese and would like to use Vietnamese to fulfill their foreign language requirement, the department has arranged with IAE to offer a final opportunity for students to take the placement test in Vietnamese. Two placement tests have been scheduled for Thursday, May 6: one from 8:30 AM – 12:00 PM, and one from 11:30 AM – 3:00 PM. Students may register for the test at the following URL:
Since there will be no Vietnamese classes offered for the foreseeable future, this test should be seen as an opportunity for students to test out of their language requirement, not an opportunity to place into a Vietnamese program.
Please note that we have arranged with IAE to give permission to students who have already taken the placement test once to take it a second time in order to try to test out of their foreign language requirement. Students in this situation should register for the test by contacting IAE directly at (512) 232-2662. They will not be able to use the online registration system.
Students or staff with questions about this test should contact IAE at (512) 232-2662 or Josh Gilliland, Academic Advisor in Asian Studies, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
