Language Placement Testing
Seton Hall requires students to demonstrate a level of foreign language competence. In order to know what level language courses students should register for, they must take the language placement test. Visit the Language Placement Testing page for more information.
The Global Learning Center (formerly known as the Learning Resource Center, aka the Language Lab) was renovated and updated with the support of the Dean's Office of the College of Arts and Sciences and Teaching, Learning and Technology Center (TLTC).
