What is Retroactive Credit?
Students who place into a foreign language class at the 1120-level or higher may be eligible for retroactive credit for the UNO courses they test out of. This means that you can receive the academic credits for the courses you were able to skip by placing forward in the required courses. You don't have to pay for these credits, and they will show up on your transcript as if you took the courses.
In order to receive retroactive credit, students must earn a final course grade of “C-” or better in the course in which they are placed. Retroactive credit is only awarded for lower-division (1000- and 2000-level) language courses.
