Optional College Credit
EARN COLLEGE-CREDIT ON YOUR GAP SEMESTER
If you are looking to get ahead on college credits while still taking a gap semester, you can earn college-level language credit on select Gap Semesters, including China, India, Guatemala, Nepal, and South America. All students study language, but you can elect to receive college-credit in this learning process. Courses are offered at the beginning, intermediate, and advanced levels:
- [China] Mandarin Language Study – Levels I, II, and III (CHIN 150/250/350; 4 credits)
- [Guatemala & South America] Spanish Language Study Level I, II & III (SPAN 150/250/350; 4 credits)
- [Nepal & India] Nepali Language Study – Levels I, II, & III (NPL 150/250/350; 4 credits)
If you feel it is essential to take two for-credit courses/8 credits in order to be able to participate in the Gap Semester, you can petition to take a second course for-credit. Other for-credit courses that may be available upon petition, include Regional Seminar, Independent Study Project (ISP), or Intercultural Development and Global Citizenship.
