Bosnian-Croatian-Serbian Courses

Attention! Students who have learned any Bosnian-Croatian-Serbian (BCS) outside of a university setting, including as a home language, while living abroad, or through study at the pre-college level, are required to take the EM/placement test prior to enrolling in Bosnian-Croatian-Serbian courses at OSU. Students who have studied Bosnian-Croatian-Serbian at a different university or as part of a summer program may be eligible for transfer credit. Learn more about transfer and placement.

If you have taken one or more language courses at OSU under the quarter system and want to continue the language sequence after the university's conversion to semesters (Summer 2012), please use the transition plan for language courses [pdf] to identify the right course to enroll in. The information listed is for Russian, but the same course numbers are used for the other languages that we teach.
