German Language Exams (DSD) 

Students with credit for the DSD German language exam may receive the following credit: DSD I: GRMN 3XXX (3 hours); DSD II: GRMN 3XXX (6 hours). Students may not receive credit for both the DSD I and DSD II. Students must bring Deutsches Sprachdiplom transcript to the Registrar's Office for evaluation.  

 

Selecting a Language Class 

Modern Language courses do not have official course prerequisites. In general, Modern Language courses follow this sequence: LANG 1001, LANG 1002, LANG 2001, LANG 2002, LANG 3XXX, LANG 4XXX.  

  • If you received AP or IB credit,  enroll in the next course in the sequence. 

  • If you did not receive AP/IB credit, but studied the language in high school you must take the placement test to determine where you should begin your course of study. Please note, the placement test is only an indicator of your current level and is not used to award retroactive credit.  

  • If you are beginning the study of a language for the first time, enroll in 1001.
