High School and Transfer Candidates

Potential undergraduate students who are interested in entering the department as new freshmen or as transfer students must first apply for admission to the university. The Office of Undergraduate Admission oversees and assists in the entire application process, from paperwork to campus visits.

At any point in your decision-making process, you are welcome to contact the undergraduate advisor or other members of the department to learn more about our programs, discuss your own academic background, or set up a visit. We are always delighted to welcome prospective students into our classes and let them experience the day-to-day life of our department.

If you have already taken some Latin (or Greek) in high school or at another university, you may also want to learn about language placement (and AP credit, if applicable).
