The Language Center is the home of the CLA Language Testing Program. The Language Testing Program administers course placement tests and language proficiency tests to students at the University of Minnesota - Twin Cities.

The Language Center also administers the official proficiency tests of the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL). The ACTFL tests are part of the CLA Certificate of Advanced Proficiency and the Proficiency Assessment for Curriculum Enhancement (PACE) Project.

The Certificate of Advanced Proficiency programs are administered through the Language Center and an academic department. The Language Center administers the self-assessments, critical reflection essays and the proficiency assessments.
