IAIA Graduates

To best prepare our students to thrive at the Institute of American Indian Arts (IAIA), 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 requested and reserved through the Canvas testing page).
  • Each test is self-paced and will take approximately two hours to complete.
  • Fall 2023 Placement Testing will be open in Canvas from July 10–August 13, 2023 (July 10–August 20, 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 your placement in General Education courses and how long it may take you to complete your degree.
