Spanish Language Placement Test (WebCape)
The Latin American and Iberian Studies Department recommends that students take the 20 minute online Spanish placement test, called WebCAPE, to help students place into the appropriate Spanish language level.  

After the completion of the test, students will immediately be given their placement level score.  

Below 240 Spanish 101 (Heritage or native speakers of Spanish must report to the Department of Latin American and Iberian Studies to take a written placement exam)
240-315 Spanish 102 (Heritage or native speakers of Spanish must report to the Department of Latin American and Iberian Studies to take a written placement exam)
316-426 Spanish 201 (Heritage or native speakers of Spanish must report to the Department of Latin American and Iberian Studies to take a written placement exam)
427-561 Spanish 202 (Heritage or native speakers of Spanish must report to the Department of Latin American and Iberian Studies to take a written placement exam)
above 561 Spanish 230/301 + (Heritage or native speakers of Spanish must report to the Department of Latin American and Iberian Studies to take a written placement exam)

Important note for heritage speakers:  Heritage speakers are those who speak and understand a language but have never formally studied the language.  Heritage speakers should not take WebCAPE; instead, they should visit the Latin American and Iberian Studies Department and take a short written test to determine their correct placement. 
The Latin American and Iberian Studies Department offers four levels of language study (Spanish: 101, 102, 201, 202) prior to enrolling in majors levels courses. Your WebCAPE score will place you either in one of these courses, or refer you to a 300-level course. Once you receive your score, you should register for a class at that level. Remember that university policy does not allow taking language courses out of sequence, nor enrolling in two different levels of language instruction simultaneously. If you are planning to study Spanish in the summer, notice that the College of Advancing and Professional Studies equivalents of 101 and 102 are numbered 105 and 106. You cannot get credit for both 101 and 105 or 102 and 106.
