The 12-14 semester hour requirement consists of four courses in one language: 1411, 1412, 2311, and 2312. These courses must be taken in sequence. No two courses in the series may be taken concurrently without the written approval of the Department Chair. The requirement reads “12-14 hours” to accommodate transfer students from institutions that award only 3 hours credit for each semester of the first year.
The University offers a CLEP subject exam in order to determine the amount of credit to be given for courses which need not be taken because of adequate performance on the examination. Inquiries should be directed to the SHSU Testing Center.
