    As a stipulation of accepting an AFROTC ICSP scholarship for a non technical degree, cadets are required to take a language or heavy math.

    "For all nontechnical scholarships, cadets must successfully complete either four semesters of a single foreign language or 24 hours of math and physical science (with a minimum grade of C-) before they graduate/commission. "

    What does "4 semesters" mean? 12 credits? 60 credits?

    Does the language have to be a a critical language or can it be French or Spanish?

    If I recall correctly it is 12 credits.
    ~ 60 credits would be more than the equivalent to majoring in a foreign language.

    It is 24 hours of math or science or 12 hours of a single foreign language I believe. As far as I know it is any language, not critical. My son took 4 math classes for 12 hours and 3 science classes with labs for 12 more hours.

    This is what I found on the Project GO website:

    "All cadets with non-technical majors who received scholarships out of high school must pass a minimum of 12 semester hours or 18 quarter hours of foreign language courses prior to the start of their senior year of college (may be one or multiple foreign languages). Alternatively, cadets may satisfy this requirement via the College Level Examination Program (CLEP) or the Defense Language Proficiency Test (DLPT). Cadets pursuing technical majors or cadets who received scholarships while in college are exempt from the foreign language requirement."

    Thanks for all your answers.
