Foreign Language Requirements for Catalog Years Prior to 2004

Foreign language requirement for catalog years 2002 and 2003

Foreign Language skills are ensured by requiring that students complete either a third-semester college-level course in one foreign language or a second-semester-level course in each of two foreign languages. This requirement may also be fulfilled in high school by demonstrating a level of proficiency equivalent to passing the corresponding Regents foreign language examination with a score of 85 or higher. Normally this examination is taken after three units of high school language study.

Exceptions:

Note: Students from Regents high schools who scored between 65 and 84 on the Foreign Language Regents exam or students from non-Regents high schools who received a grade of between 65 and 84 in the third level of high school foreign language are considered to have completed two semesters of a college-level language and can take either the third semester of that language or two semesters of a second language.
