Please see the flow chart below (link in gold) for further details regarding a) the language waiver and b) options for fulfilling the language requirement.
Fulfilling the Language Requirement
Beginning in summer 2023, incoming freshmen, dual-enrolled or transfer students who are undeclared or who have a major with a language requirement* are required to complete the following form (link below).
The form will direct students to take the language placement test, if needed. The information gathered helps the College determine whether students are likely to need language coursework, and, if so, at what level. Please note that formal language requirement waivers based on high school language coursework will be determined by the Registrar’s Office as high school transcripts are processed. Even if you anticipate receiving a high school waiver, you must complete the form below.
All students who complete the form by May 22 will be entered into a prize drawing for the sweatshirt of their choice from the GCC Bookstore.
