About Classes

All on-line language classes are taught in Polish. Previous knowledge of Polish is not required.  Students take a written and oral placement test before classes begin and are assigned to a beginner, intermediate or advanced group.  Language classes consist of approximately 5-8 students per classroom and include final exams. 

For technical reasons, the number of participants in on-line non-language courses (Polish history, grammar, society, literature, etc.) is limited and will be on a first come, first served basis.  Students are advised to make their selections when completing the 0n-line application form.  If you opt to drop a non-language course from your program, please let us know immediately so that a student on the waiting list can be assigned a seat in the class.    

Transcripts of Credit

Students may earn credit towards an undergraduate degree. In order to receive a transcript of credit, students must meet all course requirements and pass final exams.    

A Transcript of Credit includes the name of the course, the number of hours of instruction, and a letter grade.  Language courses also include the proficiency level. Transcripts are mailed on or about September 15th. In the Polish educational system, 1 academic hour = 45 minutes.  Credit listed on transcripts are ECTS credits.

All language classes require attendance, classwork and include a final exam.
