You do not need to take a placement test if any of the criteria apply to you:
- You have little or no Chinese experience and would like to take the beginning level Chinese course. You can proceed to enroll in Chin 1001
- You have finished an overseas program for Chinese and would like to continue studying Chinese at the next level pre-approved by the GW Chinese Program or by the Study Abroad Office.
- You are a Chinese native speaker and have attended a Chinese high school or college previously. You need an exemption from the foreign language requirement instead.
