Latin

To determine your appropriate placement in Latin, answer the following questions:

  • Are you beginning Latin? If yes, register for Latin 101.
  • Have you studied Latin for one to two years in high school? If yes, register for Latin 101.
  • Have you studied Latin for three or more years in high school? If yes, register for Latin 201 (however, see next bullet).
  • Have you scored 630 or above on the SAT II Latin exam, 4 or above on the AP Latin exam, or 5 on the IB Latin exam? If yes, contact Dr. Dean Simpson for placement in Latin 307.

Note: Students with 4 or more years of Latin are encouraged to take the Latin Proficiency Exam (offered during new student orientation).

Course Placement and Credit

Students who place beyond Latin 202 cannot take 100- or 200-level Latin courses for credit.
