Placement

Students who have never studied Polish before nor lived in a Polish-speaking country/home, should sign up for Polish 101.

If you have previously studied Polish anywhere (elementary, middle or high school or another college/university) or if you learned Polish by living in a Polish-speaking country or home and do not have transfer credit, you must take the UIC placement test.

Transfer students with Polish credit from another college/university should consult their advisor.

Note: Students may only take the placement test once per year.

UIC Placement Test

What do I do if the class I placed into is too easy/hard?

Students must register for the course into which they are placed.

If you have concerns about your placement, you should speak with your instructor and contact the Coordinator of the Polish Language Program.

Only the Coordinator can authorize changes. All changes must be completed by the end of add/drop.
