You may earn a total of 12-21 credits (up to 336 contact hours) per semester pending your language level.
Classes meet Monday-Thursday. Active learning components required by your courses may be scheduled on Fridays.
Prior to departure, you will indicate your preferred courses and approximate language level. Once in Viña del Mar, you'll finalize your course enrollment, as well as take a language placement test and be enrolled in the appropriate language course based on the results of your exam. You will be enrolled into courses based on their availability. It is in your best interest to have multiple alternative courses approved by your home university prior to your departure due to course availabilities. To ensure that you receive credit for the language level you place into, have your home school pre-approve courses at several levels before you leave for Chile. Please consult with your academic advisor at your home university on credit pre-approval guidelines.
