Celebrate Bilingualism

Are you bilingual?  If so, NIU wants to recognize your language skills with academic credit and career-enhancing certification!

Undergraduate students can:

  • Earn up to 12 credits by demonstrating fluency in a  language other than English
  • Receive a special certificate and notation on your transcripts
  • Free up your schedule to take other electives, or earn a minor with a few additional language courses

NIU is now offering proficiency assessments through the STAMP test, offered regularly in our Foreign Language Learning Center.  If you can pass the test at what is called the "Advanced Low Level" or above, you will receive up to 12 credits at the end of a successfully-completed semester.
