For the Bachelor of Arts, proficiency in a language other than English equivalent to the first year is required.

Students with at least two years of a foreign language in high school or competence in a foreign language for other reasons are required to demonstrate their level of proficiency through examination prior to enrolling in a foreign language course or during the first week of classes. Students may receive up to 12 hours of credit (101, 102; 201, 202) for examinations in French or Spanish administered by the Department of Foreign Languages during fall orientation.
