In order to complete the ASL Minor, the following must be completed: 1. Six courses (18 credits) in ASL. 2. At least 50% of the ASL coursework must be taken at West Chester University. 3. In the first two courses of the ASL Minor (typically 100-level), students must achieve a minimum grade of B or better. A minimum grade of C is required for ASL courses above the 100-level.
Students will be required to complete all three levels of ASL unless they successfully take the ASL placement test and are approved for a higher competency level. In this case, culture or linguistic courses in the program will be approved as substitutions based on program coordinator approval.
All courses will be offered on a block schedule to ensure consistency in student progress and one starting point (fall semester), unless a student successfully completes the placement test for a higher course. The courses will be offered as follows: fall semesters: ASL 101/CSD 110, ASL 201, ASL 301; spring semesters: ASL 102/CSD 111, ASL 202, ASL 302.
*Advanced standing coursework is defined as any 300-level course or above and specific 200-level courses identified by the department.
