First-year foreign language courses

  • All courses taken to fulfill the foreign language requirement cannot also be counted toward Areas of Knowledge. For example, a student who meets the foreign language requirement with SPAN 101, 102, 103 may not count any of those 15 credits toward A&H.
  • If the student has satisfied the foreign language requirement, first-year foreign language courses in a second language may count for A&H as long as the student completes the whole first year of the language, if the first year totals at least 12 quarter credits.
  • The requirement (to count a second foreign language toward A&H) is only that the student completes the first year of the language, not that the student completes the sequence with a numerical grade. For example, a student who has satisfied the foreign language requirement and then completes FRENCH 101 and 102 with numerical grades and FRENCH 103 with a grade of S, is allowed to count the FRENCH 101 and 102 toward A&H.
  • Foreign language courses in a language other than the one used to satisfy the foreign language requirement can count toward A&H if the courses were transferred under theTransfer Associate Degree Agreement, even if the student didn't complete the entire first year of the language.
