Information for Academic Advisors
(last updated July 23, 2021)


  • AP scores from the May exams have been received and processed if the student told the College Board to send their scores to UIUC. AP credit from the June exams probably won't be in the student's record until mid-August.
  • It is not too late for students who did not ask the College Board to send their scores to UIUC to submit this request.
  • IB scores from the May 2021 culminating evaluation of student performance have been received and processed. UIUC is committed to supporting our incoming students from the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme. We will accept and evaluate for PNP any scores that are reported by the IB Organization, whether the high school chose, due to COVID, the exam route or the non-exam route.
  • EPT scores from the July 10 testing session have processed into 'Composition I' placements.
  • EPT testing windows are filling up, but currently there is availability on August 13, 14, 16, and 17. Please encourage your students who need this 'Comp I' placement test to register as soon as possible for a test date, if they haven't done so already. Go here for more information.
  • Did you know that UIUC offers placement and proficiency testing in nearly 40 less common languages? Check out the list here.
  • Upperclassmen who need a Spanish or French course placement for Fall 2021 will be able to take the "Placement Test for Non-Freshmen" starting Monday, July 26.
  • The PNP Student Profiles get updated daily, as new test scores come in. Please contact Diana if you have any questions.
