Academic Credit: Language Programs

Students and teachers who wish to receive credit for AmeriSpan Language programs have four options:

  1. Pre-approval at your college or university 
    Many times you can obtain credit for participation in an AmeriSpan program from your local university. This usually involves meeting with faculty from your Study Abroad or Foreign Language department. Sometimes your faculty will request a course syllabus or other information. Just let us know what information you need and we will be happy to assist you. Many of AmeriSpan's partner schools have agreements with colleges and universities, whereby participants can earn academic credit for their language study.

  2. Credit through Brookhaven College
    Receive transferable credit from Brookhaven College, a fully-accredited, comprehensive community college. Students may earn up to 17 credits for language levels: Beginner 1 & 2, Intermediate 1 & 2, and Advanced Spanish Conversation.

  3. Transfer Credit from a Foreign University
    If you choose a study abroad program at a foreign universities, you will receive an official transcript. All foreign universities that AmeriSpan works with are accredited, and we haven’t encountered problems with US universities accepting transfer credit . AmeriSpan works with foreign universities primarily for our College Study Abroad programs but we do offer several language programs at foreign universities.  If a language program is offered at a foreign university it is denoted by "University Choice".
  4. CLEP Exams
    The College-Level Examination Program® (CLEP) gives you the opportunity to receive college credit for what you already know by earning qualifying scores on any of 34 examinations. Depending on your college's CLEP policy, a satisfactory score on a CLEP exam can earn you from 3 to 12 college credits. The best part is the cost of an exam is less than $100!

For all transfer of credits from any of these options, it is necessary to check with your own university concerning their relevant transfer policies!
