Q: Why can’t I add SPA 101 or 202? I try to add the course and it says I need permission?
A: Students wanting to add either SPA 101 or 202 need to complete a course override form, found here (insert link), to be given permission to add either SPA 101 or 202.
For SPA 101, you must first have taken the Spanish online placement test (insert link) and subsequently place it into SPA 101.
For SPA 202, if you already have credit for Spanish 201, you just need to complete the course override form.
If you do not have credit for SPA 201, you must also take the Spanish placement test and test into SPA 202. If you test above (313 or 315) or below (SPA 101 – 201) SPA 202, you cannot take SPA 202 and must take the course indicated in your placement.
Q. How do I obtain an override for a language course (I.e. SPA101 SPA202)?
A. Submit your request for an override through the online override request form.
Q. I notice that I have a "Junior Check-In" notification on MyASU. What does this mean?
A. Your advisors are interested in making sure that everything is going as planned and that you are on your way to being a Sun Devil graduate! In order to accomplish this, when you see this notification, schedule an appointment with an advisor. During this check-in appointment, we will verify that everything is correct in your student account and that all other indicators show that you are making progress towards graduation. This is not an urgent hold, and it will not impact your ability to register. However, please do make an appointment to see your advisor so we can remove the hold from your account.
Q. How do I add a language minor?
A. Check the catalog to review minor requirements. After reviewing, you can email email@example.com to request the minor to be added. Please include your ASU ID number in the body of the email. We encourage you to schedule an appointment with a SILC advisor to find out more about study abroad options, internships, scholarship opportunities, and student involvment.
Q. If I am on academic probation what should I do?

Q. I want to refresh my language skills. Can I take a lower level course if I already passed a higher level course?
A. Students are expected to follow the progressive sequence of 100, 200, 300, or 400 level. Once a grade of “C” (2.0) or higher is earned in a 300-level class in a language, students may not earn lower-division credit in that language. Moreover, once a grade of “C” (2.0) or higher is earned in a 200-level language course, students may not earn credit in any 100-level course in that language. Students may be allowed to audit a lower level course to refresh their skills and are encouraged to meet with a SILC advisor to discuss this option.
Q. Can I take intensive language courses to accelerate my language proficiency progress?
A. Yes, students can enroll in intensive language courses in Chinese, French, German, Italian, Japanese and Spanish. Elementary intensive language 110 courses are offered in fall semester. Intermediate intensive language 210 courses are offered in spring semester.
Q. I need to withdraw from my course(s). What do I do?
A. Contact your advisor. They can guide you through the withdrawal process. The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences students can review information on the withdrawal process online. and/or the complete session withdrawal.
