How to Earn the Global Seal of Biliteracy

We are excited that you want to certify and celebrate your school or organization's language learners. Earning a Global Seal of Biliteracy is quick and easy. Simply apply, test, and receive.

  1. APPLY

The application will let us know who you are and how we can best help you meet your language credentialing needs. You may fill out the application either before or after you have tested within a 12 month period. Please review our qualifying tests and requirements before applying. Best of all, both the application and physical award are free!


In order to receive your Global Seal of Biliteracy, we require first language documentation and qualifying test scores for your second language. We will happily get you set up with a language proficiency test or you can turn in your results from approved tests if you have already taken your language proficiency tests. You are required to meet a score of Intermediate Mid or Advanced Low on the ACTFL Proficiency Scale to earn the Global Seal. The Global Seal of Biliteracy does not cover the cost of testing.



Once we have received your application, qualifying test scores, and supporting documentation, you are eligible to receive your Global Seal! Your signed and sealed Global Seal of Biliteracy award certificates will be mailed to your school or organization - for free!
