  • World Language courses are designated WL1 (first-level course), WL2 (second-level course) or WL3 (third-level course).  Courses at the fourth level (i.e., GERM 204, FREN 215, etc. can also be designated WL3.  If students take a course above WL3 to fulfill the World Language requirement, it is handled via degree audit exception as few students select this option.
