First-Year Students

  • Advanced Placement: Advanced Placement (AP) credit is available for several of the required courses for the program. Please refer to Penn's Advanced Placement policy for more information.
  • Language Requirement:  First-year students are strongly encouraged to take a language placement exam. Students who place out of one or more levels of a language will have greater flexibility in their plan of study. Students who do not have advanced language proficiency and who need to start a language from the beginning typically need four semesters of that language to fulfill the language requirement.
  • General Education and Global Requirements:  NHCM general education and global requirements are governed by Wharton.  Please refer to the General Education and Global Course List and consult with a Wharton advisor for more information.
