The 201-202 courses require a prerequisite proficiency equivalent to the 101-102 sequence in the language. Placement testing determines initial foreign language level. Students completing 101-102 foreign language may use those credits to meet general elective requirements.

Students whose native language is not English may substitute general electives for foreign language upon the approval of the advising division dean.
