GENERAL STATEMENTS

An enrolled student who does not attend any of the first three class meetings may be dropped from the course.

Lower-division Spanish and Portuguese courses may not be added after the fifth class day.

Upper-division Spanish and Portuguese courses may not be added after the third class day.

SPANISH

All students who took any high school Spanish course after the 1998-1999 academic year and have no college credit in Spanish must take the University of Wisconsin College-Level Placement Test in Spanish (the placement test) to determine the appropriate course for which they should register. No students who completed their second year of high school Spanish after 1998 will be allowed to enroll in SPN 506 without presenting their University of Wisconsin College-Level Placement Test in Spanish test scores. The starting course for these students is SPN 508K, unless otherwise indicated by their test scores.

Lower-division courses in Spanish are at four levels as indicated below:

Level 1: SPN 506
Level 2: SPN 507 (only for students who completed SPN 306C or 506 at the University of Texas at Austin)
    or
SPN 508K (for students with transfer credit or placement credit for SPN 506).
Level 3: SPN 312K.
Level 4: SPN 312L.

SPN 604 and 612 are intensive courses intended primarily for language majors who wish to add a second language. They are recommended for students with exceptional language ability, for students interested in Latin American studies, and for graduate students who wish to attain oral proficiency in Spanish or Portuguese. Departmental consent is required prior to registration for these courses. Eligible students must see the undergraduate adviser in BAT 218 for screening and registration.

Note: Lower-division Spanish courses will have evening final examinations at times to be announced on the first class day. The final examinations will be held during the regular final examination period, but not necessarily according to the index of final examination times printed in this Course Schedule.

All upper-division SPN courses, with the exception of SPN 349, are conducted primarily in Spanish unless otherwise noted. SPN 349 may not be counted toward fulfillment of the foreign language requirement. SPN 349 may be counted toward a major in Spanish only with the recommendation of the chairman of the department and the approval of the dean.

Priority to register for upper-division Spanish courses is given to Spanish majors.

PORTUGUESE

All students with some knowledge of Portuguese, however acquired, who enroll for the first time in a University of Texas at Austin course in Portuguese must take a placement examination administered by the Department of Spanish and Portuguese prior to registration to determine the appropriate course for which they should register. Students interested in the Portuguese Placement Exam should contact the undergraduate adviser in BAT 218.

Lower-division courses in Portuguese are at four levels as indicated below:

Level 1: POR 406.
Level 2: POR 407 (only for students who completed POR 406 at the University of Texas at Austin)
    or
POR 508 (a first-year intensive course for Spanish speakers or students who have credit for SPN 312L with a grade of at least B) or POR 604 (an intensive first-year course).
Level 3: POR 312K.
Level 4: POR 312L
    or
POR 516 (a second-year intensive course for Spanish speakers or students who have credit for POR 508 with a grade of at least B, or who have consent of instructor)
    or
POR 612 (an intensive second-year course).

All upper-division POR courses are conducted primarily in Portuguese unless otherwise noted.

Courses designated PRC (Portuguese civilization) are conducted in English and may not be counted toward fulfillment of the foreign language requirement for any bachelor's degree. PRC courses may be counted for either a major or a minor in Portuguese. Check with the undergraduate adviser in BAT 218 to see which of these courses may be counted toward fulfillment of the Area D requirements for the Bachelor of Arts, Plan I.

No student may register for a graduate course in Spanish or Portuguese without consent of the graduate adviser in BAT 103.
