I am a graduate student interested in taking a placement exam. How do I register?

Graduate School of Arts and Sciences (GSAS) and non-FAS graduate students may take a language placement exam to receive a placement recommendation.

GSAS students may register to take the French, German, Italian or Spanish online exams for the summer or winter exam periods using the Online Placement Exams Registration (OPER) application. Once they have registered to take the exam, the exam may be accessed at https://onlineplacement.fas.harvard.edu

Non-FAS graduate students may also register for the exams using the Online Placement Exams Registration (OPER) application. Once they have registered to take the exam, the exam may be accessed at https://onlineplacement.fas.harvard.edu.   If they have any difficulty registering they should email placement-help@fas.harvard.edu.  Please include which language exam you would like to take and your Harvard email address in your email.

Students who plan to take a placement exam in another language may consult the Placement Exam website or be in touch directly with the relevant department.

GSAS and non-FAS graduate students: In order to receive the results of these exams students will need to contact placementexams@fas.harvard.edu no earlier than one day following completion of the exam.  You should make the subject line "Graduate student DPT results" for the fastest response.
