September 28, 2015

Are you bilingual?Want to free up your schedule to take more electives? Speed your time to graduation? Receive career-enhancing formal certification or earn a language minor with just a few more classes

If you’re bilingual, you might be eligible to earn free academic credit through NIU’s Celebrate Bilingualism Program.

Undergraduate students who can pass a standard test for fluency in languages other than English will earn up to 12 free academic credits, receive a notation on their official transcript and get a certificate of bilingual competency to show prospective employers.

Some of your peers have already taken the test – ask them how much money and time they’ve saved by earning NIU bilingual certification!

The next testing date is at 10 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 3, in the Language Learning Center, Watson Hall 101. Space is limited.
