Diplomas in French language

The French Department offers two diplomas (formerly known as certificates):

  • French Language I; and
  • French Language II.

Students must successfully complete 2.5 academic course units (5 term courses) with a cumulative average of 70% as follows:

French Language  I            FR 151, 152, 192A, 192B
and one other course taught in French above the FR 151 level.
French Language II FR 192A, 192B, 251, 252
and one other course taught in French above the FR 152 level.

The following do not count for the Diplomas in French language: FR 291, and 292.

Students who have completed these courses can apply for the appropriate diploma on the Application to Graduate form.

If students completed all requirements prior to September 2019, please contact the Undergraduate Administrative Coordinator and Advisor for assistance in receiving the certificate. 

Diplomas will appear on the official transcript and students will receive a paper diploma at graduation. Certificates were issued by the department and do not appear on the official transcript.

Please note that diplomas 1 and 2 are mutually exclusive. Only one diploma can be granted. Diplomas will not be awarded to students who are completing, or have completed, a French Major or Minor.
