Transcript Notations

Students who wish to have an official waiver noted on their transcripts that will work with degree audit and have no intention to take a course at Hopkins should follow these steps:

  1. Take the appropriate language exam for Chinese, German, French, Italian, Portuguese, or Spanish. All other languages, skip these steps and directly email the appropriate faculty contact for further instruction.
  2. Have exam results evaluated by appropriate language program director:

  3. If approved, the language program director will send a request to have a waiver noted on your transcript. This final waiver will be sent to the Registrar’s Office by the language program director. This step is required if you plan to use this result to satisfy a major requirement for foreign language.

Placement exam scores do not qualify for course credit.
