World Languages Retroactive Credits

College Credit in High School (CCIHS)


Spanish 202 / French 202 / German 202 - Earning Retroactive Credits

 

What are retroactive credits?

  • Retroactive credits are credits that are awarded for foreign language classes. If you are successful at the 202 world language level class, you will have demonstrated the skills and knowledge for college 101, 102 and 201 level classes.
  • Retroactive course credits do not have a grade and therefore, do not affect your grade point average.
  • You do not pay for retroactive credits – only for the 202 level CCIHS course you are enrolled in.
 

How do I earn retroactive credits through my UW-Green Bay CCIHS Course?

  • Complete your UW-Green Bay course registration and
  • Earn a “B” grade or better to earn 11 retroactive credits.  (See chart below)
  • Complete the UW‑Green Bay Retroactive Credit Request form during the CCIHS high school visit.
 

How are retroactive credits applied to my UW-Green Bay transcript?

  • Retroactive credits are applied to your transcript upon successful completion of your CCIHS course.
  • Your transcript will show the 3 credits for 202, your grade for this 202 level class and the 11 retroactive credits without a grade. If you earn a BC or C, you will earn half the credits (5.5).
  • Do not order your ‘official’ transcript before July 1st. Your retroactive credits need to be applied. If you order a transcript before that date, you are at risk of not having all of your credits showing on your transcript, and you will be responsible for the cost to resend the transcript.

NOTE: You will need to check with the college/university you are going to attend to see if they will accept retroactive credits. Transferability of retroactive credit is up to the institution to which the student transfers.
