Exemption

An exemption from the language requirement may be granted to students who have been tested and certified as having a learning disability which would prevent them from attaining the required level of proficiency in a second language.  Students must submit the necessary documentation to the Director of Disability Services, who will notify the department. 

Students can then fulfill the language requirement by taking two courses that deal in some substantial way with the cultures of non-English-speaking regions and that have been approved by the Department of Languages & Cultures as meeting the requirement.  For more information, please contact Office of Disability Services, Speert Hall (formerly Wayne Hall) Room 134; 973-720-2853; disability@wpunj.edu
