Placement Exams


The placement exam determines which departmental courses in Greek, Latin or Modern Greek (1101.01, 1102.01, 1103, or 2000 level courses) best suit the needs of individual students. As a result of the test, students will be placed in the appropriate level and may receive credit for those courses out of which they have tested. Students are encouraged to take these tests during Orientation or during the first week of classes.  The Latin Placement Exam is administered by the Center for Languages, Literatures and Cultures. Tests in Ancient and Modern Greek are administered by the Department.  For information about the Placement Exam in Ancient Greek, contact the Undergraduate Director.  For information about the Placement Exam in Modern Greek, contact the Director of Modern Greek. Additional Information about these tests may be obtained from the Department of Classics (614-292-2744).

If you are unable to take the Latin Placement Exam during Orientation, please contact the Center for Languages, Literatures and Cultures at
