Information for Academic Advisors (last updated July 15, 2019)
EPT scores from Testing Window #2 (July 8-10) are expected to be received and processed on Tuesday, July 23.
AP scores have been received and processed. If your student did not request at the time of testing that their scores be sent to UIUC, it is not too late for them to make the request. They simply need to fill out the online request form and pay the appropriate fee.
IB scores usually come in late July. Transcripts of exam scores for some transfer students have already been received and processed.
Students who wish to enroll in a math class for Fall 2019 have until August 30th to take the ALEKS PPL math placement test.
The SAT Evidence-Based Reading and Writing (EBRW) cutoff for proficiency credit is now 700.
The ACT cutoffs for RHET PNP are based on the sum of a student's ACT English and ACT Reading scores. Please note that we do not superscore (i.e., we do not "mix and match" in order to take the highest English score and the highest Reading score from multiple test dates).
AP U.S. History policy will no longer award credit for HIST 172. Scores of 3, 4 and 5 will all earn 3 hours of HIST 1 - - credit.
AP French scores of 4 will now earn an additional two hours for FR 205.
Rising sophomores and juniors who wish to study Chinese can self-enroll in the Chinese Placement Test for Continuing Students. New, incoming freshmen and transfer students who need a Chinese course placement recommendation will find the Chinese Placement Test in with all their other science and language placement test options.
Both chemistry placement and Rhetoric placement use ACT and SAT scores.
Many students take one or both tests multiple times.
Test-based credit will not be taken away.
Remember, it is not permitted for currently enrolled undergraduate students to take the ACT or SAT now, as college students, in an attempt to earn RHET 105 credit. This policy appears in the Academic Catalog under "Degree Requirements: Written Communication Requirement" for undergraduate students. The ACT and the SAT, and the AP and IB exams too, are written for and statistically normed on high school students. Although test scores will be evaluated for course placement and possible proficiency credit whenever they are received -- for example, it is okay for a UIUC junior or senior to send in their AP scores that were never sent when they first enrolled as a freshman -- the tests themselves have to have been taken prior to enrolling in college courses.
