Foreign Language Substitution

Foreign Language Substitution

Students seeking a foreign language substitution: 

  1. Provide documentation of a learning disability that affects the ability to learn a foreign language to the Director of the Office of Accessibility and Accommodations.  The documentation must be prepared by an appropriate and qualified diagnostic professional.  For details on documentation requirements see: Documentation of a Learning Disability.
  2. Schedule a meeting with the Director to discuss reasonable accommodations.
  3. If the accommodation of a foreign language substitution is approved, you will receive a Foreign Language Substitution Form, signed by the Director of SAA, that you will complete by choosing two substitution courses (see list below).  Bring the completed form to the Registrar's office. The goal is to take two courses that provide knowledge about a foreign culture.
  4. If you can identify two courses that are not listed below, but meet this goal, you can petition the Academic Standards Committee (the Registrar's staff can assist you with this process).
