In order for students to enroll at the proper level of language instruction, the Department recommends the following guideline: one year of high school modern language instruction equals one quarter of CSUEB instruction. Students are expected not to repeat credit already earned in high school unless significant time has passed since the initial instruction. The Department offers placement exams to facilitate student placement. Students should contact the Department before enrolling in a lower-division language class.

Students in modern language majors, minors, and options may have lower-division language requirements waived for those courses below the level at which they enroll.

Advanced Placement

A student who has completed the Classics examination with a score of "3" or above will receive 8 units of credit equivalent to MLL 1701 and 1702. No letter grade will be assigned or computed in the student's grade point average.
