English as Second Language/Foreign Language Proficient Students

student

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 Dr. Williamsen at arwill25@uncg.edu or Dr. Susanne Rinner at s_rinner@uncg.edu for further infomation.

Once the testing process has been completed, the Program Manager at CASA will process the waiver and contact the student.
