This can be done in one of three ways: 1) taking 10100 and 10200 in the DMLL, or SLPA 10900 and SLPA 20900 for 6 credits; 2) placing into and taking DMLL 10200 or SLPA 20900 for 3 credits; or 3) taking the proficiency exam and testing into 201 or above, in which case the requirement is met and no additional language credits are required.
