Transcript Notations

Instructions for Transcript Notations of Language Course Waivers based on Language Placement Testing.

Steps 1-3 apply ONLY to students wishing to have an official waiver noted on their transcripts that will work with Degree Audit (with no intention to take a course at Hopkins):

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

    • Language
    • Chinese
    • German
    • French
    • Italian
    • Portuguese
    • Spanish
    • Director
    • Aiguo Chen
    • Deborah Mifflin
    • Kristin Cook-Gailloud
    • Alessandro Zannirato
    • Flavia Azeredo-Cerqueira
    • Loreto Sanchez
  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 Mrs. Pat Gray at 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.


Note: Placement exam scores do not qualify for course credit.
