New Transfer Students

It's quite possible that you will not need to take any placement tests. This depends entirely on which College you are going into, what your academic background is, and how much (if any) earned credit has been transferred to your academic record at Illinois. If you do need to take a placement exam, please do so at least two weeks prior to your Registration/Advising date.

Not sure which placement tests you have to take? Click on the College that you have been admitted to.

If you are ready to take your math placement test, go to the Math Department’s ALEKS PPL page.

If you are ready to take a science or language placement test, go to the Learn@Illinois page.
