The Korean placement test is in two parts.

The first part is online and can be taken at any time.  It will cover vocabulary, grammar, and reading comprehension. For some people, that will be sufficient to determine they need to start in the 101 class; everyone else will continue to the second part.

Depending on the time of year, the second part may be in-person or remote (on Zoom). The content is the same either way: this part will cover writing and an interview to assess speaking/understanding proficiency.

For the remote version, you will need a computer with a camera, microphone, and a good internet connection. Also, for the writing portion, you will need either paper and pencil (you’ll handwrite and then submit a scan or photo of what you wrote), or a tablet and stylus that will allow you to electronically handwrite.
