Welcome to the Latin Placement test at UNC Chapel Hill.

The department of Classics will only recognize your score from the FIRST online placement test you take in a year. Any additional test scores will be automatically discarded. You may retake the exam starting the following April if you feel it is necessary. Keep in mind that this test, historically, is accurate for placement in UNC-CH courses.

However, after you have taken the test, if you feel that you have placed incorrectly, or have specific questions about course offerings not addressed in the descriptions below, you may contact Dr. Luca Grillo via email at lgrillo@email.unc.edu. If you have more general questions please contact your Academic Advisor.

If you have questions regarding credit hours or scores needed for AP, IB or other standardized tests please refer to http://advising.unc.edu/ab-ib-foreign-language-placement/.

*Note – The online Foreign Language Placement Exam is housed through Sakai, so the preferred web browser is Firefox. Please be sure to use this browser to take the exam. Also, DO NOT use a mobile device or a tablet to take the exam.*

**Please note – If you are an incoming freshman, you will need to have an active ONYEN in order to have Sakai function properly for the placement exam. If you have trouble entering Sakai to take the exam, please visit the following website and search for the “First-Year Student Checklist” under Tools. Make sure you have followed these steps before attempting to enter Sakai to take the placement exam.**

If you have questions regarding placement testing in Greek, please contact Dr. Downie via email at jdownie@email.unc.edu.
