Foreign Language Placement

adopted: Dec-2003
last revised: Dec-2003

Placement in a foreign language course will be determined by a student’s previous foreign language education in high school or college. Students who have studied a specific foreign language in high school within the past five years are to begin their study at Richland with the course number determined by the earned quality points as outlined in the College Catalog. Foreign language faculty may grant exceptions, based on individual assessment. All persons whose most recent prior study of the language was more than five years ago should start their college study with the course number 101.
