Cutoff Scores and Placement Messages for 2018-2019
Placement into the introductory Chemistry courses is based on a combination of the student’s highest ACT Math 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 the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in Summer 2018, Fall 2018, or Spring 2019.
The online Chemistry Placement Test does not award academic credit. If you wish to take the Chemistry Proficiency Exam, it is offered at the beginning of each fall and spring semester.
