IAIA Graduates

To best prepare our students to thrive at the Institute of American Indian Arts, we require that all incoming degree-seeking students take our self-designed math, english, and technology proficiency placement tests*.

About Placement Testing

  • Placement testing is free to IAIA applicants.
  • Testing will occur online (in-person testing may be reserved through IAIA Admissions and will take place at the IAIA campus, Wednesday, January 11, 2023, 2–5 pm).
  • Each test is self-paced and will take approximately two hours to complete.
  • Spring 2023 placement testing will be open in Canvas, January 2–15, 2023 (January 2–22, 2023, for TECH101 test-out).
  • Results will be available to students and advisors in the week following the completion of each test.
  • Transfer students with applicable college-level MATH, ENGL, or TECH transfer credits will be notified if a placement test is not required.
  • Test scores will help IAIA determine student’s placement in General Education courses, which will also determine how long it may take a student to complete their degree.
