To ensure that all students have the same baseline in biblical Greek and Hebrew, the school requires that they either take classes through the intermediate level in both languages upon arriving at seminary or, if they have already studied Greek &/or Hebrew in college, and feel that they hold a current intermediate level proficiency, they may test out of the language.
Any student who wishes to take a biblical language placement exam must take at least one of the exams in May or August of the year they first enroll in the seminary. If the student wishes to take the exam for the second language it must be taken before the start of their second year in seminary. To register for a placement exam, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and give the language for which you want to take the test.
