    In order to enable students to access the rich heritage of Jewish classical literature, all non-mechina students at the Wilf Campus must take 2-3 semesters of Hebrew upon their arrival at YU. 

    The appropriate 2-3 semester path for each student depends on his performance on the placement exam:
