Information for Heritage Learners and Bilingual Students


Students whose native language is not English, those who are bilingual to some degree in a language other than English, and heritage learners must take a placement test in their second language to ensure placement in the appropriate Foreign Language course. Placement will be based on both fluency and literacy.  


Students who are both bilingual and biliterate (can read and write in Spanish or French) may be referred to another language to meet the Foreign Language requirement for graduation in the state of Georgia. Placement of biliterate students will be left to the discretion of the department and will be based on the results of the placement test.


Heritage learners, bilingual students, and biliterate students who do not wish to take a class in their second language may take a course in another language without a placement test.
