NYU Challenge Exam

For those languages we don't offer here at the university, (such as Polish or Serbian) students may pay to take the NYU Language Proficiency Exam.

If passed the student may purchase credits if they are under 90 credits, or waver if over 90 credits.

There are two ways to take the test:

  • You can take the test at NYU's School of Continuing and Profesional Studies.
  • You can also make arrangesment with William Paterson University's Language Lab Director James Miles.

Under that arrangement NYU will mail the test to Mr. Miles. The test can than be administered here at William Paterson at your conviences with Mr. Miles serving as your proctor. If you wish to take this option please contact Mr. Miles.

More information on the NYU test as well as a list of language NYU offers, can be found here.


For any other question on the language requirement, please contact lc-placement; so your question can be sent to the correct person.
