Equivalency tables for prior catalogs are accessible through the following steps:  (1) select Archived Catalogs from the left navigation box, (2) select the appropriate catalog year (3) select Print the Archive Catalog from the left navigation box, (4) select Equivalency Tables in the Undergraduate Information box in the middle of the page, (4) select the Print Catalog button at the bottom of the page. 

Credit for exams that do not appear on the equivalency table will be awarded in accordance with state Credit-by-Exam Equivalency guidelines and evaluated on a case-by-case basis.

Defense Language Proficiency Test (DLPT): As part of the Army Training and Doctrine Command, the Defense Language Institute Foreign Language Center provides resident instruction at the Presidio of Monterey in two dozen languages, five days a week, seven hours per day, with two to three hours of homework each night. Courses last from 26 to 64 weeks, depending on the difficulty of the language. DLIFLC is a multi-service school for active and reserve components, foreign military students, and civilian personnel working in the federal government and various law enforcement agencies. To attend DLIFLC one must be a member of the Armed Forces or be sponsored by a government agency. DLIFLC students are taught by approximately 1,800 highly educated instructors, 98 percent of whom are native speakers of the languages they teach. Aside from classroom instruction, faculty also write course materials, design tests called the Defense Language Proficiency Test, and conduct research and analysis. More information about the Defense Language Institute Foreign Language Center is available at http://www.dliflc.edu/
