Special Requirements

Courses used to fulfill a major may not also be used to fulfill a requirement for a certificate. No more than 6 credit hours at the elementary level (1000-1990) may be counted toward the 24 credit hours needed for a certificate. 3 credit hours must be at the 3000-level.

Transfer credits do not apply to the certificate. Only 3 credit hours may have been earned with a grade of "P," and the grades for the courses must be above a "C-". Recognition credit hours can count toward a certificate. Up to two topics courses (e.g. ILC 2150) with a topic related to Japanese will be counted toward the certificate.
