Spanish Courses (SPAN)
Native speakers of Spanish may not obtain credit for 100- or 200- level courses. A native speaker is defined in this context as a person who has spoken Spanish since childhood and/or has received sufficient instruction in the language to be literate in it.
A near-native speaker is defined as a person who speaks, writes and understands Spanish with few errors and only the occasional non-patterned mistake. The department will assign students with some knowledge of Spanish to the appropriate level.
