Tier II Language, Culture, and Communication Requirement

All students must complete a foreign/modern language course at the 102-level (second-semester elementary level) or demonstrate proficiency at or above the second-semester elementary level (e.g., through an assessment process).

Entering students who have passed, with at least a C average, the equivalent of a fourth-year level of a foreign/modern language are waived from MCLA's Language, Culture, and Communication Requirement.

Entering students who have not met the 4th year level of the same foreign/modern language, will take a Modern Language Placement Test and be placed accordingly. Alternatively, students could elect to begin study of a new language at the first-semester elementary level (101) and subsequently complete the second-semester elementary level (102) course in the same language.
