Program 60

To learn more about how to participate in Program 60, available to all Ohio residents age 60 or older, or to add your information to the Program 60 mailing list, contact the Office of Technology and Digital Innovation (OTDI) at (614) 292-8860 or visit the Program 60 website.  

Program 60 participants wishing to start in the basic language program should consider first taking the MultiCAT placement test. Please contact The Center for Languages, Literatures and Cultures (CLLC) at (614) 292-4361 for more information about the MultiCAT placement test. Please note that a Program 60 student with less than one year of language study or that has had a long hiatus since their last Spanish/Portuguese course may enroll directly into SPAN/PORT 1101. 

Once a Program 60 student enrolls in a Spanish or Portuguese language course (i.e., SPAN 1101-2202 or PORT 1101-1103), an average of 70% or better is required in order to advance in the sequence. In the event that a student is unable to earn a passing grade in a language course, they may retake the course once. Please note that Program 60 students are expected to abide by all course policies, including, but not limited to, active class participation and completion of course assignments. Lastly, language program attendance policies apply to all Program 60 students. If you have any additional questions, please contact Kristin Hawkins.

I understand that authorization to attend this course is dependent upon the following: 

  • Permission from the section instructor.
  • Sufficient space is available in the section as per standard enrollment requirements and classroom fire codes.
  • Online registration period for undergraduate students has ended.
    • This means enrollment for Program 60 can occur as of Monday of the second week of the requested semester. 
    • Note: After receiving instructor permission, Program 60 students should plan to attend class to keep up with course content until they can officially enroll in a section.

I also understand that by attending this course: 

  • I will complete the course on a noncredit basis, meaning I will not receive earned credit hours.
  • I may not repeat this course, or an equivalent, for a grade at a later date. 
  • I may not take the EM exam for this course at a later date.
