Pertinent Information For ASL Studies Students

ASL Studies students are required to take both the lecture and lab course for all four language level classes including 115/115L, 116/116L, 215/215L, and 216/216L. Students must enroll in the concurrent lab section associated with the lecture CRN. In most cases it is the same instructor. Students not enrolled in both the lecture and lab course will be dropped by the instructor. The lecture and lab courses are directly linked so students will receive the same grade in both courses. Any questions please email the Department Chair, Dr. Bill Clary.

Transfer Information

Students planning to transfer to a four-year college or university should complete courses required for the university major and the general education pattern required by that transfer institution. See the Mesa College catalog TRANSFER INFORMATION section. Additional courses may be required to meet university lower-division requirements.

Course requirements at the transfer institution are subject to change and may be verified by a counselor or by consulting the current university catalog. Many Baccalaureate in Arts degrees require third semester competency in a foreign language. Consult the current catalog of the transfer institution and consult with a counselor.
