Placement Exams and Credits
The Department of Modern Languages and Intercultural Studies awards and recognizes credit through examination in French, German and Spanish. Any student officially enrolled at Salisbury University may be granted credits through the Advanced Placement (AP) exam or CLEP exam
Departmental placement exams in French, German and Spanish are given during Freshman Preview and at the very beginning of each semester only. All students who have not earned university academic credit in a language, either through the AP, CLEP or a credit-bearing course, are encouraged to take the departmental placement exam in that language to assist in determining proper initial placement level.
Students who have not yet earned university academic credit in a language may purchase credit for courses below the level of the first course in that language completed for credit with a grade of C or better. Credits for courses below the level of the first course completed for credit with a grade of C or better may be purchased at the current rate posted at the cashier’s office.
A maximum of two courses granted by exam or purchased through completing an advanced first course in a language may be applied to either a minor or major in that language. A maximum of three courses may be earned by exam or purchased through completion of an advanced first course in a language.
Any student officially enrolled at Salisbury University may purchase credits through a challenge exam. Credits may not be purchased through a challenge exam for a course below the student’s established level of proficiency. Conversation courses are not available for challenge exam credit.
This checklist is an unofficial tool for planning. Matriculated students and advisors should consult the Academic Requirements Report in GullNet before and after registering for classes each semester to track academic progress.
