Our programs require proficiency in the languages of Scripture so that students can explore the Biblical text with greater reflection and nuance. If you've previously studied either Hebrew or Greek, you can take a placement exam to fulfill the language requirements, wholly or partly.

During the 2020-21 academic year, the placement and competency exams will be held:

September 2, 2020
January 22, 2021
May 14, 2021

Each exam has a time limit of two hours. The Greek exams will occur at 9 AM in Van Til Room 4 and the Hebrew exams at 12PM in Van Til Room 5 each time they are offered.

Modular ThM students have the opportunity to take the competency exam online through Canvas; all other students must take the placement and competency exams on campus.

You can now register for the exams through your admission application portal!
