If you are placed into a third, fourth or fifth semester language course (i.e. Span 1003, Span 1004 or Span 3015) and successfully complete that course with a C- or better, you may receive retroactive credit for the intervening semester(s). For example, if you placed into Span 1004 and passed the course with a C- or better, you would receive 10 retroactive credits for Span 1002 (5 credits) and Span 1003 (5 credits). If you placed into Span 3015 and passed the course with a C- or better, you would receive 10 retroactive credits for Span 1003 (5 credits) and Span 1004 (5 credits). The maximum amount of retroactive credits is 10. These credits will appear on your transcript, but not factored into your GPA. To request these retroactive credits, you must contact your CBS advisor after you have received a grade in your first language course.
