Special Accommodations For OAS, Graduating Seniors, and Non-Traditional Students

  • Students registered with the Office of Accessibility Services are allowed to take the exam in the OAS office.
    • This accommodation requires prior approval with an OAS administrator.
  • Graduating seniors and Non-traditional students can request special accommodations regarding scheduling through the MLC supervisor.
  • Students registered with OAS, graduating seniors, and non-traditional students are still subject to the processing times for results in reference to peak and non-peak registration periods unless an accommodation has been made on their behalf.

Peak & Non-Peak Registration Periods

  • Students can call in advance to schedule an appointment or walk-in during the center’s normal operation hours Monday – Thursday.
  • Students are encouraged to call in advance to double check the center’s schedule and any activities taking place.   
  • The exam is not administered past 4:15pm Monday – Thursday.
    • The exam can take up to 45 minutes to register for and complete; the center closes at 5pm Monday – Thursday.
  • Students should not expect immediate results after completing the exam unless special accommodations have been requested on their behalf and confirmed with the MLC supervisor. This is especially important if they are taking the exam during a non-peak registration period.


  • Students will receive an email from the MLC supervisor indicating their placement results have been posted to their Milestones on their CUNYfirst accounts.
  • A Milestone is not the actual registration for the course. The milestone gives students permission to register for the course.
  • Students can only register for the level they place into.
    • If you are unhappy with your placement result, you can speak to an advisor or an administrator in the Modern Languages & Literatures department.
  • Students are not allowed to retake the same exam if they are unhappy with their placement result.

Steps To Take After Results

  • Once students receive their results they should register for the class they placed into.
  • Students can also speak to Academic Advisement or an administrator in the Modern Languages and Literatures department if they have questions about the registration process or exemptions from the course they were placed into.
  • If students receive the email regarding their placement results but don’t see the milestone on their CUNYfirst, they can contact the MLC supervisor for assistance.
