New Transfer Students

Placement testing is closed and will reopen on May 1, 2024.

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 Illinois academic record from your previous institution. If you do need to take a placement exam, please do so at least two weeks prior to your Registration/Advising date.

  • Composition placement testing - If you completed a composition class at your previous institution or submitted ACT/SAT scores, you do not have to fill out the Rhetoric Placement Questionnaire. For more information, click on your College (below). International students who are required to take the EPT must take the EPT for placement into their 'Composition I' class.
