All students in the Morrissey College of Arts and Sciences and Carroll School of Management must, before graduation, demonstrate proficiency at the intermediate level in a modern foreign language or in a classical language. The Lynch School of Education and the Connell School of Nursing do not have a language requirement.

- By successful completion of the course work for second semester intermediate level (Intermediate Italian II), or one course beyond the intermediate level (Italian Conversation, Composition and Reading I, or above).
- By achieving a score of three or above on the Italian AP test or a score of 550 or better on the Italian SAT subject test.
- By being a native speaker of Italian. The student should provide documentation of this native proficiency or be tested by the appropriate department.
