Academic Year for Adults (Evening)

SQCC offers Arabic classes to working professionals on scholarship. The program is a cohort program. This means that applicants are admitted only in the Fall I session to join the academic year’s cohort. Students will not pay tuition or fees but will be required to purchase textbooks for the course.

To ensure satisfactory progress through the program, we require that students obtain a minimum grade of a B and have a strong attendance record in order to continue to the next level. Upon successful completion of the program, students will receive a Certificate of Completion. Students with poor attendance or unexcused absences may have their scholarships withdrawn.

Our Arabic program standards are based on ACTFL Proficiency Guidelines 2012, developed by the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages. These guidelines are organized into five levels: Novice, Intermediate, Advanced, Superior, and Distinguished. The levels of Novice, Intermediate, and Advanced are subdivided into Low, Mid, and High sublevels.
