Apply for Scholarship
The Classics Department Scholarship is renewable annually for four consecutive school
years, dependent upon the student's academic performance and the criteria stated below:
- Fulfill general scholarship renewal criteria.
- Complete three advanced courses within the Classics Department beyond the required
language Core. Exceptions to this are possible, especially if a student elects to
study Greek and must start at the elementary level. The exact number of required courses
will depend on the student's placement in Latin and/or Greek upon arrival and will
be determined by the Chair of the Department of Classics. Courses taken beyond the
Core may count as electives.
- Begin Classics courses during the first semester freshman year and take at least one
course each semester attending the Irving campus until the minimum is reached.
- Meet with the Classics Advisor each semester for approval of your course schedule
until you have achieved the minimum course completion requirement.
