Students who know or have studied a language not otherwise tested at Gordon may opt to take the BYU-FLATS exam in that language in order to meet (validate) their CORE language requirement.
Students who have submitted a TOEFL, IELTS, or qualifying score on an SATII subject test to the College for admissions do not need to take one of these exams.
The College will offer a session each semester for students to take this exam on campus. Students should give this a high priority as an academic requirement. Announcements of this date will be made well in advance in Student News and on this page.
