Placement exam results from Fall 2022 exams were automatically reported to the Registrar’s Office. If you took an exam, they will be reflected on your degree audit by the end of the quarter you took the exam, if you waived out of the foreign language requirement.

If you need a language waiver for a departmental major requirement only (NOT a foreign language requirement or FLR), please email: estherlee@humnet.ucla.edu).  Please include the following information:

  2. UID
  3. Year/Major (or ALC minor)
  4. Which YEAR and QUARTER did you take the placement exam, and what level were you placed into?
  5. Name / Contact information for the department advisor

ENROLLMENT requests for FALL 2022 language courses will be available AFTER an exam has concluded and ALL results for the exam have been reported to the department by instructors. Please *DO NOT* email enrollment requests or submit requests before an exam has concluded and your results have been reported to the department.
