Possible high school exemptions
Students who have taken at least 4 years of one high school level foreign language (with a grade of C or better for each high school term) are exempt from Calvin's requirement. Students who have taken less than 4 years, should take a language placement test to determine how many semesters of college level foreign language will be required.
For students in the following programs, one year of college language is required: accounting, engineering, nursing, recreation, and the visual arts. Students who have taken at least 2 years of high school level foreign language (with a grade of C or better for each term) are exempt from the language requirement in these five programs.
Students who have taken at least 3 full years of high school level science, with a grade of C or better for each high school term, (excluding physical or environmental science) are eligible for an exemption from either the Physical or Living science element of the Natural World core requirement. The Registrar will determine which exemption a student will receive. Students must complete at least 1 science core course to earn an undergraduate degree at Calvin.
