Credit by Examination

  1. In any language, all four courses corresponding to the first two years (113, 114, 213, and 214) must be taken in sequential order: students are not allowed to enroll in two of these courses during the same semester.
  2. Students who have studied a language in high school or another institution must be directed to the Department of World Languages and Cultures to take the free placement exam, which will determine the level in which they must enroll.
  3. Transfer students who get credit for courses taken at a different institution may not enroll in a course lower than the highest level for which they already received credit.
  4. Students may not take Credit by Examination for any course lower than those for which they have received credit. In addition, they may only take credit by examination for the following courses: 113, 114, 213, 214, 301, 302, FREN 300, SPAN 226 and 227. Not all languages are offered beyond 200 level, please refer to undergraduate catalogue, broadside or seek appropriate language advisor.
  5. Students who have had 2 years of high school and/or college Spanish cannot challenge SPA 113, but they may challenge SPA 114. If they have had more than 2 years of high school and/or college Spanish, they cannot challenge either SPAN 113 or SPA 114. Advanced native speakers (i.e. persons born in Spanish speaking countries and who attended high school and/or college there) can only take the exam for 302 or courses above that level.
  6. Students minoring or majoring in a language must consult with the corresponding undergraduate student advisor before enrolling in a class at the 300 level or above.

  8. Without prior written authorization, students will not be allowed to enroll in any upper level course without meeting the prerequisites.
