Foreign Language Requirement Waiver
Requirements for Waiver
International students at SUNY Plattsburgh are eligible for the foreign language waiver if they satisfy any of the following conditions:
- The language of instruction during secondary school was their native language
- They studied their native language until the end of secondary school (lower secondary school or upper secondary school) as evidenced by a nationally standardized examination in the student's country of residence
- They completed standard-level IB examination in a foreign language (except "ab initio"). Students completing a higher-level IB examination also qualify for the waiver.
If a student has studied another foreign language up to graduation (3 yrs minimum) we will recommend taking a foreign language placement test during orientation.
