Placement Credit in Foreign Languages

A student placed in an Intensive Intermediate course, 2003 in French, German or Spanish, and who completes the course with a grade of B or better, may be eligible for three hours of placement credit. A student placed in French, German or Spanish 3001, and who completes the course with a grade of B or better, may be eligible for six hours of placement credit.

Placement credits are awarded in addition to the credits earned in the course.  The grade awarded for the placement credit will be an S (Satisfactory) which will be noted on the student’s transcript. These credits will only count toward the total hours needed for graduation from Marquette, and cannot be used toward the completion of a major or minor in the language. If the student is awarded the placement credits, they will be noted on his or her transcript at the end of the semester after the course was completed.

Course 2003 = 3 placement credits in addition to the 4 credits earned in the course

Course 3001 = 6 placement credits in addition to the 3 credits earned in the course
