A minor in Spanish consists of 20 credit hours beyond the 100 level, of which 12 credit hours must be at the 300-level or above. Transfer students must complete 10 hours of the 20 required for the minor in residence at Cleveland State University. Students seeking a minor in Spanish must have an adviser in Spanish to assist in the selection of courses. No grade below C in a minor course may count toward the minor.
Students are eligible to earn up to 16 retroactive credits for previous knowledge of Spanish. This policy is for students who have completed a foreign-language skills course and who earned a B- or better in that course. For example, if your first Spanish skills course is SPN 201 and you receive an A or B, you can receive credit for SPN 101 and SPN 102 in addition to SPN 201.
