Foreign Language Placement

Foreign Language Placement

Students who plan to enroll in French, German, Italian, Japanese or Spanish and who have studied that language for more than two years in high school, or the equivalent level elsewhere, must consult with the Coordinator of the Language Program in the College of Science, Health and the Liberal Arts.

It is recommended that students who are native speakers of French, German, Italian, Japanese or Spanish enroll in a language other than their own. Students, however, do have the option of taking challenge examinations to meet this requirement. Challenge examinations can be taken in French, German, Italian, Japanese or Spanish. Currently enrolled students may not take CLEP examinations for foreign language course credit. Advanced placement credits and transfer credits for appropriate foreign language courses taken at other institutions will be accepted.
