National Latin Exam Increases Costs and Fees for 2020

The NLE raises its prices for the first time since 2015

6 August 2019

  • Schools in the United States pay $6.00 USD per exam; $10.00 for ordering only one exam.
  • Schools outside the United States pay $8.00 per exam; $10.00 for ordering only one exam; US funds only, drawn off of a US bank.
  • For orders to a school or business address, there is a $15.00 shipping and handling charge per registration. For deliveries to a residence or for foreign orders, there is a $30.00 shipping and handling charge. Homeschooled students are encouraged to have their exams delivered to a business address. There is also a $5.00 charge for paying by credit card.
  • NLE charges schools requesting extra "Instruction Sheets for the Examiners". Some of our participating schools request additional copies of the Instructions for Examiner forms (the “Blue Sheet”) and return envelopes. These schools are often distance or online learning programs with students spread out across the country. The teachers request the extra Blue Sheets and return envelopes so that each testing site will have these materials. The National Latin Exam is happy to fill the request for additional materials; however, in the last year it has come to our attention that the printing and mailing costs for filling these requests have become excessive. Unfortunately, this means that we must begin charging an additional fee for schools that make these requests. Schools that request between 11-50 extra blue sheets and return envelopes will incur an additional $25.00 fee. Schools that request 51 or more extra blue sheets and return envelopes will be charged an additional $50.00 fee. Thank you for your understanding in this matter. We look forward to your school’s continued participation in the National Latin Exam.
