Italian language course levels are determined by placement tests to ensure the appropriate level. Since language demands are challenging, students may be placed in a level lower than requested. Students are advised to gain pre-approval for several levels of Italian from their home institution in order to ensure that they receive credit for the level they are placed into after the placement test. A minimum enrolment of 10 is required to confirm a course. Semester credits are shown in parentheses.
Please note that not all courses listed will run; in order for a course to be offered, there must be enough interest generated from the preliminary course forms.
Courses may change and new courses may be available.
Online Registration – Very Important

Registration week is: June 5-12, 2017 (fall semester), November 6 – 13, 2017 (spring semester)
Traditional Academic Program
With the exception of Italian (which is required), courses are taught in English, Monday through Thursday plus some Fridays. New courses may be offered.
