For Foreign Language Requirement Exemptions

If you took the Fall 2020 Placement Exam to waive your college Foreign Language Requirement (FLR), please note that our department provides your placement results to the Registrar’s Office automatically.  The Registrar’s Office will update your Degree Audit to show that this requirement has been waived via placement; however, it can take up to 4 weeks before your records are updated so please remain patient.  For more information on FLR exemptions please visit our placement exam website.
