There is no departmental proficiency test for 'Composition I.'
Sufficiently high scores on the ACT English subtest, the SAT Evidence-Based Reading and Writing subtest, either of the two AP English exams, or any of the five IB 'English A' exams will fulfill the Composition I General Education requirement by earning test-based credit for RHET 105, which is our introductory academic "Writing and Research" course. Please note that ACT/SAT scores must have been submitted with your application to Illinois.
NOTE: If you chose to be test-optional (that is, you elected not to send in your ACT/SAT scores when you applied for admission), you cannot now send in a sufficiently high ACT or SAT score in order to get RHET 105 credit. Email PNP if you have any questions or concerns about your test scores.
