Credit by Examination

The department does not normally award credit by examination for languages taught in the department. 

Students with competency in languages not taught in the department may be able to take a credit by examination exam through the FLATS program run by Brigham Young University, for which our department is an approved proctor.  More information can be found at: https://flats.byu.edu/.  The department can also proctor exams offered by New York University: https://www.sps.nyu.edu/professional-pathways/proficiency-testing.html

The University of Memphis does offer the CLEP exam through the Testing Center.  This exam allows student the option for credit by examination in French, German, and Spanish.
