Foreign Language Proficiency

To fulfill the GEP Foreign language requirement, the student must have proficiency at the FL* 102 level. This can be demonstrated by completing two years/two units of high school study of the same language with a grade better than a C (77) in each of the two years, or a passing grade at the FL* 102 level (letter-grade required), or by placement into the FL* 201 by examination. Additional Foreign Language requirements above the FL proficiency requirement (FL*102) have been established by some Colleges and programs.

American Sign Language (ASL) is accepted in satisfying the foreign language proficiency requirement with two years of ASL in high school with a grade “C” (77) or better in each year.

The Cherokee language is an accepted language for satisfying the foreign language proficiency requirement.

Special Note:  If a student changes a General Education course except for HES courses from a letter grade to credit-only (S/U), then the course will not satisfy the GEP requirements.  Consult your academic advisor if you have questions.
