For native speakers of languages other than English, intermediate proficiency in English fulfills their foreign language requirement. These students need to demonstrate ESL status by one of the following means:
*HS transcript- any amount of high school in another country where the curriculum was taught in a language other than English, even if the student did not graduate from that high school (please note this change- if you did ANY high school in another country where the curriculum was taught in a language other than English, we can use a transcript from that school to waive the language requirement).
*Letter from middle or elementary school stating they are fluent in another language or a transcript from a middle or elementary school if the student attended the school in another country and the curriculum was taught in a language other than English.
*Interlink documentation (if the student has worked with UNCG Interlink at all).
*Enrollment/completion of a course meant for ESL students such ENG 101-N (for non-native speakers)
Students who are proficient in a language not taught at UNCG and do not have ESL documentation may take a foreign language proficiency test in the desired language through a contact provided by the UNC Language Assembly or approved by the Department of Languages, Literatures, and Cultures. Please contact Dodie Booton, CASA Program Manager, at firstname.lastname@example.org for further infomation.
Once the testing process has been completed, the Program Manager at CASA will process the waiver and contact the student.
