Students may be eligible to apply for three to six hours of special placement credit dependent upon the level in which they are placed, and the completion of that course with a grade of B or better (plus earn credit for the course in which they are enrolled).
For example: if a student places in an Intensive Intermediate course in French, German or Spanish numbered 2003 and completes the course with a grade of B or better, he or she may be eligible to apply for three hours of special placement credit (plus earn four credits for course 2003). If a student places in a French, German or Spanish course numbered 3001 and completes the course with a grade of B or better, he or she may be eligible to apply for six hours of special placement credit (plus earn three credits for the course in which the student is enrolled). The grade awarded for the special 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. Such special placement credit is not automatic. It is the student’s responsibility to complete an Application for Placement Credit in Foreign Languages form in his or her first language course at Marquette. If the student is awarded the special placement credits, they will be noted on his or her transcript at the end of the semester after the course was completed.
