Skill Area III. Foreign Language Proficiency
The University language requirement can be satisfied in any one of the following ways:
- Completion of a level-three high school foreign language.
- Elementary proficiency as demonstrated by successfully completing a second-semester level CCSU foreign-language course (112 or 118). Students with no previous background in a language must take the first and second semesters (111 and 112, or 118); students who place out of 111 due to previous background in the language may satisfy the requirement by taking 112 only.
- Passing the CLEP, a standardized examination which demonstrates knowledge of a foreign language equivalent to completion of a second-semester course or higher.
- Successful completion of a foreign-language course at a level higher than the second- semester level.
- Demonstration of native proficiency in a language other than English (requires evaluation of skill level by an appropriate faculty member and/or official documentation, and approval by the Chair of the Department of Modern Languages).
