Information for Academic Advisors (last updated September 19, 2019)
Registration for the mid-semester EPT has just opened. The on-campus test will be given on Saturday, October 12th. Please let your students know they must register in advance, as seating is limited. There is no online option with mid-semester testing.
Placement testing will re-open on November 1st for Spring 2020 course enrollment. Students who began at UIUC in Summer or Fall 2019 will be able to log in and take any placement tests they may still need to take, along with all new students enrolling for Spring 2020.
Missing AP or IB test scores? It's not too late for your student to send them in. They can contact the College Board and/or the International Baccalaureate Organization and request that they be sent. A fee might be charged by the testing agency. Feel free to call Diana 265-6248 to check whether UIUC has the scores before the student orders them again. Please have UIN and DOB ready.
Both chemistry placement and Rhetoric placement use ACT and SAT scores.
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.
Feel free to call Diana at 265-6248. You may also email firstname.lastname@example.org If there’s a question about a particular student, please have the UIN handy.
