Read the following very carefully and answer the questions. Whether or not you are scheduled for
a foreign language assessment will depend on your answers.
Calvin students are required to complete two years of college level foreign language in the same
language study. Exceptions are made for the following programs: Accountancy, Engineering,
Nursing, Recreation, and the Visual Arts (BFA). For these programs, a student must have two
years of a high school foreign language with grades of C or better, OR they must take one year of
a foreign language at Calvin. Students should consult the college catalog for more specific information.
Four years of high school foreign language study with grades of C or better
(in one foreign language) may be used to meet the college foreign language requirement.
This is a language exemption. International students who have English as a second language are
also exempt from the language requirement.
