If a student continues a language in which they have previous experience, the placement exam determines which class is appropriate for their level of language competency. The student takes this class during their first semester at Bethel. 

Most financial aid packages stipulate 12 credits/semester; Minnesota state grants are reduced when credit load falls below 15 credits/semester. (Interim credits may be split between fall and spring for state grant purposes only.)

Check with the Financial Planning Office to see if any aid is available for summers at SIL-UND.
