Placement Exams

Students elect to take Placement Exams; not all take them. Students have access to them until September via Blackboard. Students who think they have been inappropriately placed should go to the first class and speak to the instructor. If they still feel they are not in the right section, they or their advisor should contact the appropriate person listed below.

LANGUAGES: Students in some language courses can, at the instructor’s discretion, be switched to a different section after the add/drop deadline.

French John O’Neal ext. 4212
German John Bartle ext. 4779
Italian Mary Beth Barth ext. 4776
Latin (Classics) Shelley Haley ext. 4197
Russian John Bartle ext. 4779
Spanish Edna Rodriguez-Plate ext. 4294

MATHEMATICS: A student who wishes to take a Mathematics course, and who either does not have a Placement Recommendation or believes that the recommendation is incorrect, should go to the first floor of the Christian Johnson Building on Monday, August 25, between 2 and 3:30 p.m., to resolve the problem before registration. For further information contact Robert Kantrowitz at rkantrow@hamilton.edu (ext. 4417), or Richard Bedient at rbedient@hamilton.edu (ext. 4138).

MUSIC THEORY: Students may take the Music Theory Placement Exam by contacting the Music Department. Students who do well on this exam may be able to skip MUS 109 and enroll in MUS 209 instead. If a student did not complete this exam over the summer and wishes to do so prior to registration, he/she should contact the Music department to take the exam.
