Students selecting this option must pass the Intermediate II course, as well as any necessary previous courses, for the language they have chosen and are not required to go further in that language.
Students who studied French, Italian, Portuguese or Spanish in high school must complete an online language placement test to be placed into the appropriate level course sequence. Placement tests provide only a rough indicator of a student’s level, so students who are placed into a course higher than Intermediate II must complete the course to fulfill the requirement.
Students interested in one of these languages who have no prior experience in the language are required to take the two-semester introductory course sequence before they may register for the intermediate level courses that fulfill the Core Curriculum language requirement. These two Intro courses will count towards credit as electives.
(Remember: A student wishing to demonstrate proficiency via a test must take one of the tests listed above under Options A, B, and C.) Students who are placed directly into an Intermediate II or higher course must take one additional free elective to assure that they will have enough courses to fulfill graduation requirements. The course could be in the same language to enhance proficiency.
