Students seeking an Associates in Arts degree who entered Fall 2009 or later must complete two courses of a world language (previously referred to as foreign language) with a grade of “C” or better or can “test out” of this requirement by providing evidence of at least a 102-level proficiency in one of the world languages offered at the City Colleges of Chicago (CCC). CCC uses the College Level Examination Program (CLEP) foreign language examination to measure knowledge and proficiency of the Spanish and French languages.
What is the CLEP Exam?
CLEP examinations are designed to measure knowledge and ability equivalent to that of students who have completed 2 - 4 semesters of college foreign language study. The exam focuses on skills typically achieved from the end of the first year through the second year of college study. Material taught during both years is incorporated into a single exam.
By taking the CLEP Exam, you have the opportunity to receive college credit for previously acquired knowledge, including native language, independent study, prior course work, on the job training, professional development, cultural pursuits, or internships.
