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

Testing Services will temporarily move to Plaza Room 307A from May 16 to June 3.

The MSU Denver Testing Services office in TV347 will be closed for a remodel between May 16 and June 3. During this time we will temporarily re-locate to the computer lab in Plaza Building Room 307A. All placement testing services and make up exam services will be available at the temporary location. CLEP testing will not be available during the remodel.
