Placement Test Information

Are you enrolling in your first college-level modern language course? Enrollment in German at the 102 level or higher at the University of Idaho requires completion of the Avant Placement Test. This is a computer-delivered placement test and is administered on the Moscow campus by Testing Services (Mary E. Forney Hall, Room 301) for a $25 fee. While there is no time limit, most students complete the test in less than an hour.

You can take the Avant Placement Test by appointment between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. Call 208-885-5138 to schedule your placement test. Additional information and practice tests are available on-line for both, at Avant PLACE.

Please plan to take the test at the very latest by 5 p.m. on the Friday before classes begin. Results are available within three to five business days on VandalWeb – View My Test Scores. If you do not fulfill this course prerequisite, you will be automatically dropped from your modern language class on the third day of classes. For information regarding this requirement, contact the School of Global Studies at 208-885-6179 or email
