    Take the Language Placement test

    • Students who are continuing to study a language they started learning prior to DU take a placement test to determine their starting course level. 
    • Some degree programs are exempt from the language requirement which includes the Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) and all Engineering degree programs. Students with these declared degree types do not need to take the proficiency placement test.
    • Contact for questions regarding your placement test results. 
  • gear icon

    Use the Math Advising Tool to determine the appropriate math course for your program/degree type.

    Verify we have received your AP/IB Scores. 

    AP and IB results are received in large batches starting in mid-to-late July. It can take a couple of weeks to process these scores and award the appropriate transfer credit.

    If you have not requested your scores, please see directions below:
