*Student majoring in German are expected to have some proficiency in German through high school study. Students with previous German study should take the German Placement Test and enroll in the correct course(s) based on their score. Students who have completed three or four years of high school German should see a German major advisor for placement. Student lacking in sufficient major-level proficiency to take the first major courses (GER 31201 and 31211) can reach it by taking courses in the prerequisite sequence (GER 11201, 11202, 21201 and 21202) based on their placement score and high school training. Students with sufficient German to place into higher semesters are not allowed to take Elementary German I (GER 11201).

**A minimum C (2.0) grade must be earned to fulfill the writing-intensive requirement.
