Foreign Language Courses at MSOE
Enrollment in Foreign Language Courses
- A student may not enroll in a foreign language course if that foreign language is the student’s native language.
- A student who has had one year of a specific language in high school may enroll in the introductory language course. Students having two years of a specific language in high school must begin in the second language course. For each additional year of language in high school, a student must begin at a correspondingly higher level.
- A proficiency exam administered by the instructor may be needed to determine the appropriate level of language course for the student.
- A student placed in “Foreign Language II” or “Foreign Language III” will not receive credit for more fundamental language courses.
