Futher Recommendations

1 . Courses for the major in which students earn grades lower than a “C” must be repeated.

2 .  Students majoring in French are encouraged to:

  • Participate in Brockport’s study abroad program in Tours, France or in another SUNY program in a French-speaking country.
  • Take classes or pursue another major/minor in a field related to desired career (for example, study another language in addition to French, especially if candidates are seeking teacher certification).

Students who have prior study of French in high school at any level should take the Foreign Language Placement Exam to most accurately determine their appropriate starting point. Information on how to register for a test can be found at The following guidelines may also be used for placement if a test cannot be taken prior to registration (contact or for a registration code):
