The University of Illinois recognizes the value of the Advanced
Placement (AP) Program and the International Baccalaureate (IB)
Programme. However, students should be aware that there are times
when it is in the student’s best interest to take the UIUC course
that corresponds to the AP or IB credit instead of accepting the
test-based credit, so as to be better prepared for the rigors of
the subsequent course in the sequence. Students are able to consult
with their academic advisors during Summer Registration in order
to determine what will be most appropriate for their individual
plan of study.
Questions? Contact "Placement & Proficiency" staff by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 217-244-4437 during business hours.
New undergraduate students who have not already earned college-level credit in
the subject are allowed to take a UIUC departmental
proficiency exam in math,
biology, chemistry, physics, French, German, or Spanish if they wish to try to
proficiency out of an introductory course.
