Students must take languages courses in ascending sequence; students may not take for credit a lower language course than one they have already completed. Students who choose to take a course at the College of Idaho that is lower than a transfer course from another institution forfeit the equivalent transfer credits.

At minimum one-third of coursework for the minor must be completed at The College of Idaho.

Students who have previously taken French must complete the Modern Foreign Language placement test to determine entry level. Students must complete French coursework through, at minimum, FRE-202 (or equivalent by placement test) to be eligible for this minor.

All students must complete 15 units of coursework regardless of placement test results. Students who complete FRE-202 in fewer than 15 credits have the option to take up to 3 credits in Humanities & Fine Arts courses (English, Philosophy & Religious Studies, Theatre & Speech Arts, Music, or Art). ENG-100 and FYS-101 (or FYS-110) may not be used to fulfill minor requirements.

Students may elect to minor in French (Humanities & Fine Arts PEAK) or in French Foundations (Professional Studies & Enhancements PEAK), but not both.

Students wishing to teach French at the secondary level should consult with the Education Department for specific certification requirements.
