Placement Exam

Placement examinations in the Ilokano language are given to students who have sufficient exposure to the language. The schedules for such examinations, usually given prior to each semester, are published at the Ilokano Program website and other appropriate website maintained by the University of Hawai’i.

The exam is free. Save time and money by earning back credits, and take a shorter path toward achieving your academic goals.

Students placed into 102 or higher, are eligible for back credits (up to 16 credits). For example, if students who are placed in 301 complete the course with a grade of C or better, then they will receive back credits for 101, 102, 201 and 202 for a total of 16 credits.

Students with no prior experience with the target langauge should enroll in 101 and may do so without consent.

If you would like to take the placement exam please make an appointment with Dr. Aurelio S. Agcaoili, Ilokano Language and Literature Program Coordinator, at or call 808-956-8405.
