Beginning April 16, 2012, undergraduate students whose native language is Chinese, Japanese, or Korean (C/J/K) and who graduated from a high school where their native language (C/J/K) is the language of instruction should fulfill the foreign language requirement by providing official high school transcripts or other documentation. Please download the "Application for Establishment of Foreign Language Proficiency for Non-Native Speakers of English" form from the College of Arts and Sciences websiteCollege Recorders Office.
If you completed the 6th grade or above but have not graduated from a high school where your native language is the language of instruction, submit to the EALC Department an official document that proves the completion of the 6th grade or above along with the Language Proficiency Certification Form (available at Department office, Global and International Studies Building 2050A).
If you did not complete the 6th grade or above in a country where C/J/K is the language of instruction, you still need to take a proficiency test to establish your proficiency in your native language. Students in this situation please see the testing information below.
Note that all Applications for Foreign Language Proficiency for Non-Native Speakers of English and the accompanying proof of foreign 6th grade or higher completion must be received by email@example.com at least one month prior to semester end to allow the College Recorder’s Office time to update the student’s record. Documentation received by EALC with less than one month before the end of the semester cannot be guaranteed that a student’s record will be updated by the semester’s end.
