Academic Department Additional Offerings

Approved 04/2013; Effective 01/26/2014
http://uwc.edu/catalog/policies/advanced-standing/dept-offerings

Previous

French, German, Spanish credits may be earned for the elementary and intermediate courses (101, 105, 201, 205) lower than the first course (including the 107, 204, and 207 two-credit modular courses) completed at the UW Colleges if that course is completed with a grade of B or higher. This policy is strictly enforced; a B- is not acceptable. Students may not first audit a course and then later take it or a higher level course for credit and receive credit for the lower level course(s). Such retroactive credits (for coursework prior to the course taken) do not satisfy requirements for the Associate of Arts and Science Humanities designation. Students may earn a maximum of 16 world language retroactive credits. To earn retroactive credits, contact the appropriate instructor at the beginning of the semester.

Students also may earn credits for the elementary and intermediate courses (101, 105, 201, 205) lower than the first pair of two-credit modular courses (106/107, 203/204, 206/207) successfully completed. A grade of B or better must be earned in each course of the modular pair; a B- is not acceptable in either course.

Current

World Languages Retroactive credit policy:

Students whose first language course taken for credit at the UWC is above the level of 101 or 103 and who receive a B or better in that course will be awarded retroactive credits for preceding courses in the standard language sequence. Retroactive credits granted may include 101, 103, 104, 105, 106, 107, 201, and 205. Students who take 225, 226 or 227 as their first Spanish language class and who earn a B or better in the course will earn 16 retroactive credits. Students are not eligible for more than 16 retroactive credits, and the language courses 118, 215, and 216 are not included in the retroactive credit sequence. These courses cannot earn retroactive credits or be earned as retroactive credits. Students will not receive retroactive credits if they have audited a course prior to completing it for credit. Retroactive credits are designated as free electives and do not fulfill HU requirements for the Associate degree. The grade of B is strictly enforced: a grade of B- will not earn retroactive credits.
