Questions About Placement in Language Classes 

In general, Modern Language courses follow this sequence: LANG 1001, LANG 1002, LANG 2001, LANG 2002, LANG 3XXX, LANG 4XXX.  

  • If you received AP or IB credit consult the catalog for the credit awarded by Georgia Tech and enroll in the next course in the sequence. 

  • If you did not receive AP/IB credit, but studied the language in high school you must take the placement test to determine where you should begin your course of study. Please note, the placement test is only an indicator of your current level and is not used to award retroactive credit.  

  • If you are beginning the study of a language for the first time, enroll in 1001.  

If needing further information or placement help, consult with the appropriate division coordinator:
