Other courses may also be accounted toward the minor approval from the Chinese program coordinator.

Native and heritage speakers of Chinese may not receive credit for the 10000- and 20000-level language courses. In order to earn the minor in Chinese, a native or heritage speaker must complete a minimum of 6 hours of Chinese language at the 30000 level or above. A native speaker is considered someone who completed his or her primary and secondary education in a Chinese-speaking country. A heritage speaker is someone who was primarily educated in U.S. schools but who speaks Chinese at home, with friends and co-workers, and is fluent. Any deviation from these regulations must be discussed with the Chinese program coordinator.
