taking the online placement test and scoring at the 2000 level or higher AND taking the in-person proficiency test at the SPAN or LANG departments and placing at the 2000 level;

2)     Take two semesters at the college-level of the same world language (for example, SPAN 1000 and SPAN 1010; or GREK 1000 and GREK 1010; or SIGN 1010 and SIGN 1020).

 International students – have already met the College’s world language requirement, regardless of their catalog year.
