As per the European Union regulations of 2000, students need to have completed the equivalent of French 111, French 112, and French 210 to be admitted in any study abroad program within the Union.

Upon arrival in France, students take a placement test to determine their class level. Four possible levels exist.

As a rule, summer study abroad credit is not awarded for literature classes (223, 300 or 500+ classes).


Students may earn up to 12 credit hours during a full semester abroad and must meet with the study abroad advisor and the undergraduate advisor at the time of application to develop a semester plan.

Credit for literature classes will be considered only if students receive prior approval from and complete advanced planning with the study abroad advisor, read all required works for the class, and take the class final upon their return.

All students must submit an organized portfolio of all work completed abroad for evaluation.
