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.

Students should arrange to have their official high school transcript sent to Waubonsee. A recording fee of $10 per credit hour applies, and you must visit Registration and Records at one of our four campuses to request credit to be posted. Credit must be requested within three academic years of high school graduation. Also, duplicate credit will not be awarded.
