Placement Testing in Japanese
Students with any previous background in the study of Japanese (in high school, at another school or college, etc.) may take a placement test in Japanese. The test results will help to place the student at an appropriate course level. Based on the test results and after consultation with the test advisor, the student may sign up to earn extra units based on previous study.
Thus, for example, if you had two years of high school Japanese with good grades, you would take the placement test and speak with the test advisor. If the test outcome and advisor recommend that you enroll in Japanese 2, you would take Japanese 2 and upon completion of this course with a grade of A or B, City College would also award you units for Japanese 1.
So, in the above example, the student would earn five units per course for a total of ten units.
Thus, in this last example, the student would earn three units per course for a total of six units.
Any extra units,
however, are not assigned a letter grade. There is no charge to the student
for the extra units. At this time, the units awarded apply
to the following classes :
