This program is designed for students with little or no previous knowledge of Spanish. Students entering this program who have acquired some basic knowledge of Spanish elsewhere should take the SIP Certificate Program placement test to determine appropriate level. Students need to enroll and complete at least the last four courses of the SIP Certificate program (a minimum of 8 credits) and finish the certificate.

This certificate is not intended for students who are already fluent in the language or who have a solid knowledge of Spanish. Those students will be directed to the regular major or minor in Spanish.
