Steps for Spanish Course Equivalency Approval
1) Download Equivalent Course Approval Form here or pick up a form in Old Main 110.
2) Fill form out in pen, and bring it to the office of the Division of Spanish and Portuguese, 110 Old Main, 254-710-6398. FAX: 254-710-3799.
3) If you are hoping to take a 2nd year Spanish course off-campus, you will need to provide, in advance, documentation indicating what textbook will be used. If the other institution is still using a 1st year text book in the 2nd year, we cannot grant Baylor equivalency.

Must cover last ½ of the text, including the subjunctive for 1402 credit.
Popular first-year books: Puntos de partida, Arriba, Vistas, Dos mundos, Mosaicos, ¡Dímelo tú!, Nexos, ¿Cómo se dice? ¡Claro que sí! Plazas, Así es.
Cannot be using a first-year text in the second-year course.

In our first-year course, we cover the entirety of our first-year text. We do a third-semester grammar review with an intermediate text and concentrate on reading and discussing literature in the fourth semester.
The language requirement constitutes over 10% of a bachelor's degree. It is based on the ideal that an educated person should achieve the level of proficiency in the language at which they can appreciate another culture and its literature in the culture's language.
