Many of our students have received college credit for their studies at CRLA.
Most of these students come on their own and apply for credit independently at different universities in the U.S., Canada and Europe. This is usually the most economical option.

In order to meet the requirements for credit we provide students and universities with the following documents:

– Confirmation of enrollment and course description
– After completing the course: a certificate of attendance and a letter stating the Spanish level and type of course received.
– A transcript of their grades, including the total amount of hours completed.

Usually, students who are applying for credit must first have approval from their university prior to beginning studies at CRLA. Most institutions also require that students take a final exam and receive an evaluation of their work and progress during the course.

However, each university or college has a somewhat different system for granting credit so if a student is interested in this option, we can work with their Spanish or Study Abroad department to set up a program that will meet their specific credit requirements.
Since your university must approve our programs prior to your enrollment, please take into account the time that elapses between initial contact with your university and their final approval of the program chosen.

Please notify CRLA at least 4 weeks prior to starting date.
