Language Exam Form
All Students are required to pass a reading proficiency exam in a second language (and in some cases a third foreign language), or else petition the Graduate Studies Committee for an exemption. If petitioning for an exemption, students should include a letter from their advisor and submit this to the DGS prior to scheduling the defense of their Portfolio. Language exams should be administered before the end of the third semester of enrollment. Once the Language Form has been filled out the Administrative Operations Manager will assign a faculty member to administer the exam.
