Cutoff Scores and Placement Messages for 2017-2018
Placement into the introductory Chemistry courses is based on a combination of the student’s highest ACT (or SAT) Math score and the student’s score on the Chemistry Placement Exam. Cutoff scores and placement recommendations are derived in collaboration with the Chemistry Department and are reviewed annually. The policies below apply to all students entering Illinois in Summer 2017, Fall 2017, or Spring 2018.
The online Chemistry Placement Exam does not award proficiency credit.

1 SAT Math scores get converted in the computer system to ACT Math equivalents, whether you took the "old SAT" or the "new SAT."

NOTE TO NON-SCIENCE MAJORS
CHEM 108 (“Chemistry, Everyday Phenomena”) is offered in the spring
