To keep current with foreign language major and minor requirement changes, please check with your adviser regularly and consult your STAR. You also should follow the requirements set forth in the corresponding bulletin the year you came into the program. For more information, select one of the undergraduate bulletins below:
Students with prior foreign language training are eligible to earn up to 14 retroactive units (credits), shown in parentheses, by successfully completing one of the following courses with a grade of B or better:
- 111 (4)
- 203 (8)
- 204 (11)
- 300 level (14)
Be aware that in order to be eligible for retroactive credits, you must earn a B or higher in the course you have placed into. No one may earn more than 14 retroactive credits.
You should also be aware that retroactive credit policies for specific courses vary between each language program. You should consult your instructor, adviser, Academic Program Assistant Kathy Lutzke or Department Chair Elizabeth Wade-Sirabian to be certain which courses may be applied.
Applying for Retroactive Credits
Students should apply for retroactive credits after grades are submitted to the foreign languages and literatures office, Radford 315. You can apply with the help of Kathy Lutzke during regular office hours 7:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.
