General Education Foreign Language Requirements

First Year students who did not complete three or more years of the same foreign language in high school are required to take two semesters of the same language beginning at the 100 level.

Students who wish to place into a higher foreign language course are required to take a free placement test available through the Student Success Center.

To demonstrate novice/high proficiency, students may do one of the following:

  1. Successfully complete one semester of intensive beginning language (103, 5 credits) at SAU, or transfer equivalent credit from another college or university.
  2. Successfully complete two semesters of the same beginning language (101 and 102) at SAU or transfer equivalent credit from another college or university.
  3. Earn a minimum of 6 credit hours on the CLEP Test in a foreign language. (Note: CLEP credit in a given academic subject cannot be awarded if a student has already begun college coursework in that subject).
  4. Earn the appropriate score on the foreign language section of the SAT.
