1. Log on to the internet site of the placement test from any Internet connected computer - you can take the test in the CCSF Language Center (second floor of the library) if you like. It should not take more than 30 minutes.
2. Click here to go straight to the CCSF portal, type in the password: california1 (state name and the number one, lower case), click "login".
3. On the next screen, choose "German" from the drop down menu and click "begin".
4. Then follow the directions to take the test. After taking the placement test, you will AUTOMATICALLY receive an email with your result. YOU MUST PRINT OUT THIS EMAIL AND BRING IT WITH YOU TO SEE THE GERMAN ADVISOR, Frau Edda Brunner. She is available by phone at (415)239-3223 (leave a message) or e-mail. You will need to complete a form so that we know you want us to grant the credit for previous study upon completion of your CCSF German course. You may earn the same number of units for previous study that you earn for the German course you enroll in, i.e., if you take a three unit course successfully, we grant the previous three units; if you take a five unit course, we grant the previous five units. There is no charge to the student for the extra units.
