Many colleges and most universities do require applicants to have studied another language. Foreign language placement test are common during college orientations. If you have not taken a foreign language you may be required to do so while in college.

Most colleges require 2 years of one foreign language in high school or 1 year of one foreign language in college, but you should check with your college about their particular requirements. In preparation for college, you should study at least one language for as long as possible.

no a foreign language is not necessary to enter college, but if you do have a foreign language it will only benefit you. and if you do not take a foreign language in high school you should take it in college. Remember you don't need to take a language but it only benefits you. if you have a language colleges will be more apt to take you rather than someone who doesn't have a language

Can self studying a language in highschool count towards college credit?

The short answer is no. When you take a foreign language in high school, colleges are able to rely on the fact that you learned the language well enough pass the classes. If you are studying a language on your own, they have no way to verify what you have learned. It's possible that some colleges may have an exam that you can take to prove your foreign language skills; however, I don't know of any colleges that do that.
