Language Offerings

Classes are offered in fall and spring. Some languages may be available during summer session; call 621-3387 if you are interested in summer classes.

Languages and levels vary based on student demand; see the list on the right for our currently offered languages.

If you don't see the language you are interested in, request it!
Most of the languages we offer started with a request by a student.

Courses are listed under CRL in UAccess, with the course number indicating the level (101, 201, etc.) and the section number indicating the language. For example, the section number for Vietnamese is 331, so 1st semester Vietnamese is CRL 101-331, and 3rd semester Vietnamese is CRL 201-331. No times will be listed, because tutorials are scheduled at our office to accommodate your schedule.

See step-by-step instructions on using UAccess to enroll in CLP courses.
