NYUFLP

The NYU Foreign Language Proficiency Exam tests three skills – listening, reading and writing – that are necessary for everyday communicative tasks. In most exams, students are required to answer questions about a listening comprehension passage, to translate into English and into the test language, and to write a short essay in response to a selection of general topics.

Marylhurst University is able to administer more than 50 different foreign language exams to Marylhurst degree students. Students may select a 12-point version (up to 18 lower-division quarter credits) or a 16-point version (up to 18 lower- and 6 upper-division quarter credits). For a complete list of test languages and registration information, contact the Center for Experiential Learning & Assessment. 

Fees

Fees for NYU Foreign Language tests are $385 for the 18-credit exam and $495 for the 24-credit exam and include both test and administrative costs. Make checks payable to Marylhurst University.

Score Reports

NYU Foreign Language Proficiency Exams are sent to New York University for scoring. An official letter of equivalency from NYU stating the results of the exam is sent to both the student and to Marylhurst University. Marylhurst will convert the recommended credit to quarter credits, issue a score report and use it along with the NYU letter of equivalency to post the credits.

Test scores are usually mailed to Marylhurst within 8 to 12 weeks of the test date. Credits for exams successfully completed will be recorded as transfer credit on students' Marylhurst transcripts.

Test Sites

Marylhurst is not an open testing site – only admitted, degree-seeking students are eligible to take these exams at Marylhurst.

Marylhurst students outside the Portland metropolitan region may contact the Center for Experiential Learning & Assessment for assistance in finding a local test site.

Dates

Admitted Marylhurst degree students may arrange to take NYU Foreign Language examinations at Marylhurst. Registration forms are available in the Center for Experiential Learning & Assessment or download form here.
