College of Languages, Linguistics and Literature Policy on Second Language Back Credit
Petition for Back Credits:
All students (including native speakers of a language) with experience in another language other than English may earn “back credits.” These students may take any UHM course, appropriate to their level, in which there is significant use of that language. (Appropriate level determined by placement exam or adviser; significant use determined by the course content.) Upon completion of this course* with a letter grade of C (not C-) or better, may petition between 3-16 back credits. Please note that a “W” grade received for university language courses will make you ineligible for back credits when taking subsequent courses. For more information please visit UH Manoa General Education Policy on Second Language Back Credits (pdf).
*Only first instance of a course.
