What are the admissions requirements?

The Duluth Business University admits as regular students those persons having a certificate of graduation from a school providing secondary education or the recognized equivalent of such a certificate (GED) and who also meet program admission standards.
Applicants who do not meet either of the above requirements but who desire additional education may apply to take individual classes that will not lead to the awarding of a diploma or degree.

Regular admission to DBU may be granted based on a prospective student’s meeting of one of the following criteria:

  • Completing a pre-enrollment Accuplacer exam. A minimum score of 40 must be achieved on the Reading section of the exam for admission to DBU.
  • Providing documentation of a bachelor’s degree granted by an approved institution as described in the Advanced Standing and Transfer of Credit section of this catalog.
  • Providing documentation of a minimum composite score of 21 on the ACT.
  • Providing documentation of a minimum composite SAT score of 1485. If SAT was taken prior to March 2006, providing documentation of a minimum composite SAT score of 990.
  • If a student took the CPAt exam through DBU in the past, entrance scores will be honored according to the requirements listed in the catalog at the time of past enrollment. The student may be required to take the Accuplacer exam to determine appropriate placement in foundation classes.
  • Students may receive credit for Fundamental Communications if they achieve a score of 70 or better on the Sentence Skills section of the Accuplacer placement exam. Students who achieve a scaled score of at least 52 on the Arithmetic section of the exam will be given credit for Fundamental Mathematics.
  • The Accuplacer exam may be taken at the DBU campus or offsite. Accuplacer exams taken offsite must be proctored by an approved proctor who will receive the appropriate password for entering the exam after approval by the DBU Registrar or Director of Education. The tester must present the proctor with photo identification before being allowed to take the exam.
  • Students enrolled in the Medical Assistant Program must receive their first Hepatitis B vaccinations before beginning their internships. Although it is not advised, students may waive this requirement by signing a declination form.
  • Effective July 1990, the Minnesota College Immunization Law requires students born on or after January 1, 1957, who wish to enroll in any public or private post-secondary educational institution to submit to the school a statement that they have received the appropriate immunizations against measles, rubella, mumps, and against diphtheria and tetanus within ten years of application and enrollment at the institution.

High School Advantage Program
If you are a high school student you are eligible to take one course, free of tuition charges, per quarter beginning the summer quarter after your junior year. You may take up to four courses free of tuition. This program is offered to seniors with a cumulative grade point average of 2.0 or higher. A student who withdraws or fails a course while in the High School Advantage program must successfully appeal in writing to the Director of Education for continued enrollment under this program.

What if I have a GED and not a High School Diploma?
The Duluth Business University admits as regular students those persons having a certificate of graduation from a school providing secondary education or the recognized equivalent of such a certificate (GED) and who also meet program admission standards.

How do I know if I’m eligible to enroll?
