Defense Language Institute (DLI) Defense Language Proficiency Tests

The Defense Language Institute (DLI) administers a series of Defense Language Proficiency Tests (DLPT), which support its extensive foreign language instruction programs for active duty military personnel. Persons who served in the military may present records of language proficiency as assessed by DLI. The examinations, which test listening, reading and speaking skills, are scored on the basis of the level of proficiency achieved in each of the three areas. A variable range of credits may be earned, depending on the combination of scores received. Students should request that transcripts be sent to the Office of the Registrar by contacting the DLI at:
