General Education requirements at High Point University include the completion of one foreign language class at the 1020 level or higher. Students waived in high school will be considered for a foreign language substitution. Students with grades of C– or higher in a high school foreign language will be required to attempt a foreign language and show good faith effort before a substitution would be considered.
Decisions for Foreign Language substitutions are made by the Accessibility Services Committee, and may take two weeks or more. Arabic, Chinese, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish classes will meet foreign language requirements.
