Illinois Seal of Biliteracy

SXU is proud to honor the Illinois State Seal of Biliteracy, and we work to help students leverage bilingualism and cultural traditions in their academic studies and professional journey.

The Illinois Seal of Biliteracy is equivalent to two (2) years or twelve (12) semester hours of credit for foreign language taken during high school. Credit will be given for the completion of introductory (101-104) coursework. The high school transcript must indicate the student will be receiving or has received the State Seal of Biliteracy. Students who have received a State Seal of Biliteracy must request course credit for their seal within three (3) academic years after graduating from high school (HB 4446, Rule 3-9a).

More information on college credit can be found in the Course Catalog .
