Latin Placement Test

The Latin Placement Test is required for EVERY student who has taken Latin at the high school level within the last three years and wants to continue studying it at UNCG. It is given during pre-registration and at the beginning of each semester. If it has been more than three years since you took Latin, you may still take the placement test and place above the 101 level.

Remember: It is in your interest to place at the highest level possible. The College graduation requirement requires you to pass the 204 level of a foreign language. If you are able to start at the 203 level, you can finish this requirement in 2 semesters.

Tests are given to entering students at SOAR sessions
in June and August at 11:00 a.m. in Room 1214, Moore Humanities & Research Admin. Building.

Test dates for beginning of Fall 2018 term – location for both tests is 1103 MHRA:

  • Wednesday, Aug. 15 at 1:00 p.m.
  • Thursday, Aug. 16  at 12:30 p.m.

**Please give the test your best effort.  If you place higher or lower than you think is right, please sign up for the level you place in anyway.  Then, talk to your instructor after the first few classes and we can make adjustments as needed.  We want you to succeed!**
