Retroactive Credit

Students with no prior college or university French or Italian course credit are eligible for retroactive credit according to this formula:
  • 3 hours of retroactive credit are awarded to a student with 2 or 3 years of high school French or Italian who enrolls initially at KU in a third-semester French or Italian course (FREN 230 or FREN 231 or ITAL 230) and receives a grade of C– or higher.
  • 6 hours of retroactive credit are awarded to a student with 3 or 4 years of high school French or Italian who enrolls initially at KU in a fourth-semester French or Italian course (FREN 240 or FREN 241 or ITAL 240) and receives a grade of C– or higher.
  • 9 hours of retroactive credit are awarded to a student with 4 years of high school French or Italian who enrolls initially at KU in a French or Italian course with a fourth-semester course as a prerequisite and receives a grade of C– or higher.
 
These credit hours do not affect your GPA, but do count towards the overall number of credits you need for graduation.
 
Retroactive credit is not automatically posted on your KU transcript; you must apply for it. To do so, students must bring the following to Sarah Greenwood in Wescoe 2083 (8-12:30, 1:30-5) :
 
  1. Copy of High School transcript (available from Admissions at the KU Visitors Center)
  2. Copy of your Advising Report (available from MyKU, instructions here)
 
The University charges a fee of $50 for retroactive credit, regardless of how many credit hours you receive. This will be charged through your student account on Enroll & Pay.
