The Duolingo English Test is an English language proficiency exam like TOEFL and IELTS. It is

conducted by the popular language-learning platform Duolingo which awards a proficiency score

certificate. It is a computer-based online test that students can take from any part of the world on their

computers. The proficiency certificate is also recognized globally by the top-ranked universities in the UK,

USA, Canada, and Germany.  

 Since the global pandemic began, more than 1,000 new programs have started to accept the Duolingo

English Test, with more than 2,000 institutions now using it as part of their admissions process – 70% of

which are based in the U.S. The test is accepted at institutions like Stanford University in California,

Washington University in St. Louis, Swarthmore College in Pennsylvania, Vanderbilt University in

Tennessee and New York University.

the school's admissions process, all results are considered equally, whether they are from the Cambridge

English exams, Duolingo English Test, IELTS Academic, PTE Academic or TOEFL iBT.

While some schools accept the Duolingo English Test, prospective international students should be

aware that other schools like the University of California—Los Angeles and the University of Richmond

only accept the test as an optional supplement to the TOEFL and IELTS.

In addition, other schools are only temporarily accepting the Duolingo English Test. For instance, the

University of Colorado—Boulder is accepting the test as an approved examination for English proficiency

through July 15, 2021, and will evaluate scores on a case-by-case basis.
