Note that passing the DELF B2 or DALF C1 diploma is strongly recommended. AUP will award one transfer credit for each diploma. The DELF (Diplôme d’études en langue française) and DALF (Diplôme approfondi de langue française) are diplomas awarded by the French Ministry of Education to prove the French-language skills of non-French candidates. Each diploma corresponds to a level established by the Council of Europe’s Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR).

 

MINOR GUIDELINES

Minors must be completed at the same time as the BA or BS degree. No more than 8 credits from courses taken outside AUP may be applied towards a minor, and these courses must be specifically accepted by the department supervising the minor. All courses counting in a minor must be completed with a minimum 2.0 cumulative grade point average, with no individual grade lower than “C-.”

Courses taken to satisfy requirements for a minor must include at least three courses which are not being applied towards a major or towards another minor. Courses taken to satisfy the Core Curriculum requirements, including FirstBridge courses, may be applied towards a minor. Minors do not appear on diplomas but are noted on students' transcripts. A self-designed minor is an option for students with a GPA of 3.5 or higher; the student and her or his advisor design these minors.
