Placement & Credit

UT-Austin Students

Current UT students who would like to receive credit by exam for Malayalam should purchase the DAE (Departmentally Administered Exam) form from Student Testing Services and then contact Dr. Darsana Manayathu Sasi in the Department of Asian Studies to schedule an exam. Students will receive credit and be placed into the appropriate level of Malayalam based on the results of the DAE.

Texas High School Students

Credit-by-Exam (CBE) tests are available through UT High School. High school students anywhere in the state of Texas can arrange an online exam to receive credits toward their diploma. The exams cover all levels of the current foreign language requirement in Texas (1a, 1b, 2a, and 2b). Please visit the UT High School site for study guides and details for the exams.

Other University and High School Students

Professional evaluations and testing for academic credits or requirements at other universities and high schools are possible, but must be arranged directly with Dr. Darsana Manayathu Sasi in the Department of Asian Studies. To obtain formal, transcriptable university credits, we warmly recommend our summer Malayalam courses, open to both college and college-ready high school students.
