For Japanese courses in Fall 2015, there is no blocking of registration for courses for which you've met pre-requisites outside of CCSF.

For Spring, 2016 registration procedures, watch this space.

Students with a previous background in the study of Japanese (in high school or at another school or college) may take the placement test. The test results will help to determine your appropriate CCSF course level.   

            Japanese 1, 1A,1B            Japanese 2, 2A, 2B            

           Japanese 3, 3A, 3B            Japanese 4, 4A, 4B
