Desktop Underwriter (DU) is an automated underwriting system developed by Fannie Mae to help mortgage lenders make informed credit decisions on conventional and government loans.

Evaluating Loans with Desktop Underwriter focuses on how Fannie Mae's automated underwriting system can be used to evaluate conventional conforming mortgages with Approve or Refer recommendations. The course begins by describing what loans are eligible for DU evaluation and how to access, navigate, and use DU.
