Arabic Placement Test

If you have previously studied Modern Standard Arabic, and would like to be placed into a Arabic course beyond 101, or be exempt from the entire Arabic language sequence to fulfill Carleton's language requirement, you will need to complete a placement test.

To receive a copy of the test, please email Prof. Yaron Klein. You may return the test by August 1st, either via email, or regular mail to:

Prof. Yaron Klein
Department of Middle Eastern Languages
Carleton College
1 North College Street
Northfield, MN 55057

You will be sent a preliminary indication of your level placement prior to registration. We will confirm this placement after a conversation with you in Arabic on campus, during New Student Week. If you have any questions before then, please email Prof. Klein at
