*Students majoring in Spanish are expected to have some proficiency in Spanish through high-school study. Students with previous Spanish study should take the Spanish Placement Test and enroll in the correct course(s) based on their score. Students who have completed three or four years of high school Spanish should see a Spanish major advisor for placement. Student lacking in sufficient major-level proficiency to take the first two major courses (SPAN 38211 and SPAN 38213) can reach proficiency by taking courses in the prerequisite sequence (SPAN 18201, 18202, 28201 and 28202) based on their placement score and high school training. Students with sufficient French to place into higher semesters are not allowed to take Elementary Spanish I (SPAN 18202).

**One course must be earned with minimum C grade to fulfill the writing-intensive requirement.
