The State Seal of Biliteracy (SSB) is a high school program that recognizes students who have attained an advanced level of proficiency in speaking, writing, and reading one or more languages in addition to English. The Illinois State Seal of Biliteracy posted to a student's high school transcript will be evaluated for up to twelve (12) credit hours of foreign language coursework at Waubonsee Community College if the applicable language course is offered at the College (Chinese, French, German, Japanese, or Spanish). For example, a student who has earned the SSB in Spanish would receive SPN 101 (3), SPN 102 (3), SPN 201 (3), and SPN 202 (3) while a student who has earned the SSB in Chinese would receive CHN 101 (3) and CHN 102 (3).
Credit must be applied to the college transcript within three academic years of high school graduation. Also, duplicate credit will not be awarded.
