High School Language Levels
The language requirement consists of completion of a foreign language through the 201 level or demonstrated proficiency at that level. Proficiency, the number of courses needed to complete the requirement, and course placement, are determined by previous experience as follows:
- completion of level 4 or higher of a language in high school (see table below) OR
- corresponding AP, IB or CLEP credit (see , Undergraduate Catalog), OR
- completion of a language through the 201 level at a regionally accredited college/university
Students should not enroll in language courses below their appropriate placement level without authorization from the Department of Modern Languages, Linguistics, and Intercultural Communication (MLLI). For students who have completed level 3 of a language in high school, but who feel unprepared for the 201 course, a 103 review course is available in French and Spanish.
