The FREN 101, FREN 102, FREN 203, and FREN 204 series is recommended for those who seek basic proficiency in the language. This series requires attendance of a one hour weekly language lab.
French Placement Exam
Any student who has knowledge of or has had prior instruction in French in high school or at a college or university other than LMU must take the French Placement Exam.
This requirement includes students who have taken the AP French Exam in high school. Generally, a student who receives a score of 5 or 4 on the AP French Exam (Language or Literature) places in FREN 204. Final placement is conditional upon the instructor’s consent. Course credit will be given for FREN 101, FREN 102, and FREN 203 once the student’s official scores have been received from the College Board. It is the responsibility of each student to ensure that the official AP scores have been sent to Loyola Marymount University.
