ACADEMIC PREFERENCE SURVEY

 
Please answer the following questions to help us get to know more about you and to assist us in developing your preliminary Fall 2019 schedule:

FOREIGN LANGUAGE

Foreign Language is a General Education requirement at Transylvania University.

  • Students who completed 2 or more years in high school and continuing in the same language at Transylvania must complete through 1034 (Level III).
  • Students with fewer than 2 years of high school and continuing in the same language at Transylvania choose must complete through 1024 (Level II).
  • Students studying a new language must complete through 1024 (Level II).

First-year students are placed in the following language classes based on high school experience:

  • 1 semester/unit in high school = enrolled in 1014 (Level I)

  • 2–3 semesters/units in high school = enrolled in 1024 (Level II)

  • 4 semesters/units or AP in high school = enrolled in 1034 (Level III)

Placement testing in foreign languages will take place during First Engagements to determine what level of work the student should pursue. Placement test results will be available before the Fall term begins and will be available in Student Planning under Test Summary.


Please answer the following questions regarding foreign language:
*What language did you take in high school?
 
*What is the highest level (not number of years) of language that you completed?
What language do you plan to pursue in college? *

Area I - Foreign Language
We encourage students to begin their language study in the first year, especially if you plan to continue in the language you studied in high school as a gap in study affects your retention of language skills.
