National Latin Exam

Attention Teachers
You recently received a yellow application for the 2018 National Latin Exam in the mail.  It has come to our attention that a line was omitted from the credit card payment section, the line asking for cardholder name as it appears on the card.  If you will be paying by credit card and wish to mail your application and payment, please add the cardholder name as it appears on the card to your yellow application, or use the print application option on this website to print the corrected application.  We apologize for our error.

Use the menu to the left to apply for the 2018 NLE using either the convenient online application or print the application and mail it in. Select Late Application from the menu to the left or the title of this section.

Whether you are registering online or paper, please indicate how your students will be taking the exam: on a computer online or by using the traditional pencil and paper by using the appropriate registration section.

Don't procrastinate! The last day for late registration is January 31, 2018.

You can now use the Add-on Application to add exams to your original order.
