A year of study at Kenyon in either Latin or Greek satisfies Kenyon's language requirement.
To satisfy the language requirement through previous study in Latin, a student needs a score of 4 or 5 on the Latin Advanced Placement exam, or a passing grade on the department's proficiency test given during the orientation program as well as on the Wednesday of the 9th full week of classes each spring semester. (Download a sample proficiency test.) The examination tests the student on the equivalent of a year of Latin at Kenyon. A grade of 65% is needed to pass the department's Latin proficiency test.
To satisfy the language requirement through previous study in ancient Greek, a student needs to achieve a passing grade in an examination set by the department during orientation or at a later point in the academic year, but only by arrangement between the student and the department. The examination tests the student on the equivalent of a year of Greek at Kenyon.
Sanskrit, when offered on request as an independent study, does not satisfy the language requirement.
