Filipino Placement Test


Take the Filipino placement test for free. Save time and money by earning back credits, and take a shorter path toward achieving your academic goals.


The Filipino Program offers free placement tests for students with varying degrees of language proficiency.


Students placed into FIL 102 or higher, are eligible for back credits (up to 16 credits). For example, if students who are placed in FIL 301 complete the course with a grade of C or better, then they will receive back credits for FIL 101, FIL 102, FIL 201 and FIL 202 for a total of 16 credits.


Students with no prior Filipino language experience should enroll in FIL 101 and may do so without consent.

Please contact Dr. Pia Arboleda at at least two days before the test date to reserve a space for any of these sessions. Please arrive on time.
