Office of Testing Services

The mission and goal of the Office of Testing Services is to offer placement testing services to the Metropolitan State University of Denver student body. All first-time college students are required to take a series of exams before registering for their first-semester classes if their ACT or SAT scores are below departmental cutoff scores. Transfer and adult students are also required to take one or all of the exams if they do not have appropriate transfer credits. The exams measure college entry-level skills in writing and mathematics. The scores are used by advisers to help determine the selection of appropriate courses.

The testing center offers a variety of other testing services in addition to placement exams, our exam services include:

  • Test proctoring service for "mostly on-line" courses
  • American College Testing (ACT) National and Residual testing programs
  • Departmental Testing (MFT, ISA, Senior Exit Exams, etc.)
  • Make-Up Examination Service
  • CLEP testing

Summer Semester 2016 Hours:

Regular Hours: Monday - Friday, 9am to 5pm (all tests must be complete by 5pm). Placement testing available on a walk-in basis during regular hours, all other exams require an appointment.

Extended Office Hours: Additional evening and weekend hours are available on Tuesday evenings and Saturdays by appointment only.
