Returned missionaries who wish to maintain their language skills can do so in a number of ways as BYU students.
If your language is not taught at BYU or you are not a BYU student, you are eligible to take the FLATS exam, which provides you with up to 12 pass/fail credits. You can find out more about the FLATS exam here.
If your language is taught at BYU, and you are a BYU student or a visiting student, you are eligible to take the Challenge Exam, which provides you with up to 16 graded credits. In order to take the Challenge Exam, you must be enrolled in the corresponding Returned Missionary class. By completing the class, you will fulfill the Global and Cultural Awareness and Languages of Learning General Education requirements.
If students wish to continue further with their language learning, they can continue their studies through earning a Language Certificate, a Minor, or a Major if it is available in their language.
See the list below for the classes we generally recommend for Returned Missionaries.
