Foreign Language Exam

Select programs require students to take foreign language exams prior to graduation. If you are unsure about whether this is required for your program, please contact your advisor.

Graduate student foreign language exams are held in-person on the Medford Campus. The 2024-2025 academic year test schedule will be published by August 2024 and will be posted to this site.

Exams are translation-based, and students will be allowed to bring a dictionary for use during the exam.

Students are strongly encouraged to complete this requirement early in their graduate studies.

Practice exams may be found at the bottom of the page. If you would like to take a foreign language exam in a language other than those found on this page, please send an email to
