It is especially important that modern language majors have their transcripts reviewed by a departmental advisor before enrolling in their final 30 credit hours at UC Denver. Failure to do so may result in delay of graduation.

Students presenting four years of high school foreign language (Level IV) for admission must see a departmental advisor before enrolling in courses for the major.

Students with advanced placement credits from high school should see a departmental advisor about course equivalencies. The Department of Modern Languages does not accept CLEP credits.

Before enrolling in their final semester, seniors demonstrate advanced oral and written proficiency in the language that they are studying through an oral proficiency interview and a written outcomes assessment exam. Students must see a departmental advisor to schedule proficiency tests in their language.

Advising on Issues Outside Your Major or Minor

Your faculty advisor from the department will work with you on academic major and minor requirements in modern languages. Your assigned college advisor from the CLAS advising office will help you handle general educational issues such as: core curriculum advising, transfer credits evaluation for Core Curriculum, academic warning and probation.

Your degree progress and graduation plans are monitored and approved by both advisors.
