Placement Credits

Student standing on Great Wall of ChinaPlacement credits are a great way to free up hours in your Butler career, allowing you to combine other majors and/or minors with your Modern Languages degree or take general electives you’re eager to experience.

Butler Language Placement Credits (BLPC), credits awarded based upon your Butler placement exam result or the course level in which you begin via permission of the Modern Languages department chair.

For BLPC, you can request these 200-level elective credits after completing, each with a "C-" or better, two 300-level Butler courses in the same language.

How it works:

  • Begin in 203: you’ll be eligible for three 200-level elective BLPC
  • Begin in 204: you’ll be eligible for six 200-level elective BLPC
  • Begin in 300-level Skills: you’ll be eligible for nine 200-level elective BLPC

When will I receive the Butler Language Placement Credits?

To request BLPC, please complete the two 300-level courses, then fill out the online form.
