Students not passing the oral proficiency test will be required, before retesting, to take CJ 202, ENGL 140, and/or an English composition class. The student will select classes in consultation with the TESOL adviser.
NOTE 2: One year of university-level foreign language study is a prerequisite for ES 405.
