Signing Up for the OPI and the WPT

Once you have finished the required coursework, it is time to begin preparing for the assessment process. This process must be done before you graduate. It must also be done on the BYU campus.

*Note: You must request the assessments a minimum of 2 weeks before the last day of classes.

~~~~~

If you are a language major, you will be required to take the OPI and possibly the WPT in your capstone course. Please wait until that time to take the assessments. (Check with your language department for details.)

If you are a language teaching minor, you will be required to take the OPI towards the end of your coursework. Please wait until that time to take the assessments. (Check with your language department for details.)

If you are a language minor, please contact us when you are ready to take the assessments (languagecertificate@byu.edu).

If you are not seeking a language degree, please be sure to post all of your grades on your profile and then we will contact you with instructions on how to proceed. *If you are finishing your coursework and are graduating THIS semester, please contact us early about taking the assessments before graduation (languagecertificate@byu.edu).

  • Because the results of the assessments can take a month to receive, the sooner in the semester you schedule, the better.
