Waiving General English Requirements

To waive general English courses, the student must have met the following qualifications or had already earned credits in alternative classes as determined by FLED. Waiving a general English course will reduce the number of credits needed for graduation. Please see below for more details.

Currently enrolled third year (or below) undergraduates who meet NTNU's standards for general English exemption (please see appendix) should apply to the relevant office with documentation of language assessment taken within three years. They should do so one week prior to and following the start of the semester; the application is invalid outside of that timeframe. Starting in the 2020-2021 Academic Year, first year to third year students may apply during the above timeframe. Fourth year undergraduates may apply on a rolling basis during the semester.
 

Course waiver applicants should refer to the following "English Course Enrollment Guidelines" and provide (1) a printout of the online application form, (2) the original grade transcript and (3) one hard copy of the transcript to the Common Core Education Foreign Language Education Division Office (Location: Center for General Education, Administrative Building 2F, Main Campus).
