Students who have graduated from high school or completed a high school equivalency program in 1997 or later must meet the second language requirement for admission to a four-year Oregon state college or university (see pg. 47): 1) Two years of the same high school-level second language, or 2) two terms of a college-level second language with a grade of C or better (may be first-year second language which can be used as elective credits).
