Placement Testing

All First-year students and many transfer students are required to take placement tests. If you need to take placement tests, you must do so before you can schedule an orientation date. To determine your required placement tests, log into the Portal at, go to the UIC Connect tab. The “Required Placement Tests” portal contains pertinent information about the placement testing process. You must complete all required placement tests online.

Students who fail to take placement tests will not be able to register for orientation which impacts the ability to register for classes. Please take the time to respond accurately to the questionnaire regarding testing in and then take all required tests.
