Spanish Courses

Placement

Placement Students and advisors should approach placement in Spanish as per the following guidelines when registering for Spanish classes:

SPN 101: *no experience at all in Spanish or one year of high school Spanish
SPN 102: **two years of high school Spanish
SPN 201: three years of high school Spanish
SPN 202: SPN 201 or equivalent

*Note: if the student took Spanish recently in high school and had a positive experience with it, they should register for SPN 102.

**Note: If the student does not have a significant gap in their Spanish studies, they should register for the advised courses. If the student has a one or two-year gap in their studies, they should register for a lower-level course. For example, if the student took three years of Spanish but stopped studying the language for whatever reason, they should register for Spanish 102.
