Are you transferring to Clark from a college or university in or outside the United States? Are you wondering how you might transfer your language credits?
At Which Level Should You Start?
Use the charts below to determine which course level is a good starting point for you, depending on how many previous years of the language you’ve had.
Students with native or near-native fluency in a language cannot get credit for a lower-level course in that language. Native speakers should consult with the coordinator for the language to decide which upper-level course in their native language to take.
Our rule is that regular beginning courses (101-102) are closed to anyone who has had two years of that language. The University reviews high school transcripts to make sure you’re not over-qualified for a course. However, in Spanish, we do offer an intensive, one-semester beginning course that builds on the experience you’ve had in high school. Students in these intensive courses have studied the material in the past but may have forgotten much of it. Because their purpose is to refresh knowledge, these one-semester courses move at a faster pace than the two-semester beginning courses.
