Modern Foreign Languages Requirement


All students must take two sequential courses of the same language at the appropriate level in order to fulfill the Modern Foreign Language requirement. See the placement charts below. Notice that the guidelines for Spanish are different from those for French and German. The different nature of language instruction and of student populations, both in high school and in college, necessitates different placement policies. A student may also satisfy the MFL requirement by passing a CLEP language exam at Level I (Beginning). Foreign nationals who have learned English as a foreign language are exempt from the requirement.
