The Foreign Language Challenge Exam                   (Last updated: 3/14/18)     

What is it?

Stony Brook University's Foreign Language Challenge Exam program allows students to satisfy the Skill 3 / LANG general education requirement, earn credits (in some cases), or receive the appropriate placement in a sequence of language classes. Challenge Exams can be taken in all languages taught at Stony Brook and in some other foreign languages, depending on the availability of qualified proctors. Students interested in taking a Challenge Exam should visit the Language Learning Research Center, (1055 Humanities within CSCL {1st Floor}, 631-632-6914) for more information. To see what language courses are offered, go to Languages at SBU
