Advising Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

1. In order to receive a minor in Spanish, a student only has to take three (9 hours) upper level classes (3000 or 4000) past 2050. We recommend that students schedule an advising appointment to discuss which advanced courses are best for them and to add the minor to their records. Although there is not a form to fill out to declare a minor, students should let their major's advisor know that they have a minor in Spanish.

2. UNT accepts credit from AP and CLEP exams for Spanish up to the SPAN 2050 level. Please see the UNT Catalog for more information.

3. We usually offer SPAN 1010 - 2050 in the summmer. Advanced courses in the summer are limited.

4. For current study abroad programs, visit studyabroad.unt.edu.

5. A Spanish major can transfer up to five advanced level classes (15 hours) taken at another four-year university (first being approved by College of Liberal Arts & Social Sciences and our department) or a pre-approved study abroad program.

6. Students who are native speakers of a language that is not offered at UNT can take a proficiency exam to earn a waiver for required language courses, as long as it is approved by their major program.
