Students must complete lower-division language courses or place out of lower-division courses through the online placement test.  Students who place into LSPA 201 or LSPA 300 will have to replace some or all of the lower-division credits with upper-division Spanish classes or other language-appropriate, department-approved, non-LSPA courses.


Designated courses count toward the culture or literature requirement.


Other courses, such as LSPA 495 or LGEN 290 may be petitioned to substitute for one of the courses above.

Any transferred language courses, other than gtPathways courses, will be evaluated by the Department of Languages, Literatures and Cultures for equivalency to CSU language courses or as substitutions for CSU language courses.
