ORAL PROFICIENCY INTERVIEW:

In April of each year, Arabic minors who are enrolled in Arabic language courses, are required to take an oral proficiency test, lasting approximately 30 minutes. This is a departmental requirement. Students who do not take the test will have their Arabic final grades withheld for the semester. Majors and Minors do not need to sign-up for this exam, but will be contacted in late March with more information concerning the date and time of the test.
