FOREIGN LANGUAGE REQUIREMENT
Florida Statutes require that students admitted to a Florida public university meet the foreign language requirement for demonstrating competency in a foreign language. Students who have earned an A.A. degree from a Florida public community college may be admitted to the upper division but must demonstrate competency prior to graduation with a baccalaureate degree.

Students completing 8-10 semester hours of American Sign Language with passing grades will have satisfied the foreign language admission requirement.

Competency may be demonstrated in the following ways:
  1. Earning two credits of a single foreign language in high school or one credit in high school and the second semester (four semester hours) of the same foreign language at an accredited postsecondary institution demonstrating proficiency through the second level.

  2. Satisfactory completion of two semesters (8-10 semester hours) of a single foreign language at a postsecondary institution prior to admission to UWF demonstrating proficiency through the second level. Grades of "P" are acceptable for this requirement.

  3. Satisfactory completion of two semesters (8-10 semester hours) of a single foreign language at UWF demonstrating proficiency through the second level. Grades of "P" are acceptable for this requirement.

  4. Successful completion of the following tests with appropriate test scores:

    1. CLEP subject matter examinations.

    2. MAPS-Latin examination published by the College Entrance Examination Board.

    3. Proficiency examination at UWF.

  5. E. Undergraduate transfer students are EXEMPT if:

    1. They received an A.A. from a Florida public community college prior to September 1, 1989; or

    2. They enrolled in a program of studies leading to an associate degree from a Florida public community college prior to August 1, 1989, and complete at least one academic course each twelve month period beginning with the student's first enrollment in a Florida public community college and continuing until the student enrolled at UWF.
The foreign language requirement must be satisfied prior to progression to upper-division status.

In addition, each academic department may determine specific language requirements for students and will recommend or require languages and proficiencies according to individual needs, career objectives, and academic programs.
