Fairfield University to make language courses available to high school students


In the fall of 2000, Fairfield University will make several of its language courses available to high school students to earn college credit at a 50 percent tuition discount. In addition to Spanish and French (which are available in most high schools), the university is offering courses in Chinese, German, Italian, Hebrew, Japanese and Russian as well as the classical languages of Greek and Latin.

Several classes are scheduled after 2:30 p.m. to accommodate high school students' schedules. Registration begins Monday, July 10, through Sept. 5, on Mondays through Thursdays from 8 a.m. to 7:15 p.m., and Fridays from 8 a.m. to noon in the registrar's office, Canisius Hall, Room 200. Students must register in person and bring a letter from their high school principal or guidance counselor verifying they will be enrolled in high school during the fall of 2000.

The fall semester runs from Wednesday, Sept. 6, to Friday, Dec. 12. Exam dates will be announced. For more information call the College of Arts and Sciences at (203) 254-4000, ext. 2221.
