If you have prior experience with Portuguese and feel you should be placed higher than P100 as your first course, you must meet with the Portuguese director, Professor Luciana Namorato, to have your correct course placement determined. Here is a summary of the special credits you can get for Portuguese courses, based on placement and course completion:
- If you completed P135 and then skip to P250, you have earned special credit for P200 (short-track) .
- If you complete P250 or a higher course with a C or better, you have earned P200 special credit.
- If you complete P311, P317 or any higher-level Portuguese course with a C or better, you have earned special credit for P200 and P250.
- If you complete P200 and skip to P311 or higher (completing the course with a C or better), you have earned special credit for P250.
Portuguese students can claim these special credits by filling out a form in GA2160. Our department advisor will verify the information and send it to the recorder for processing.
