Pre-Enrollment Evaluation Program
Required of students registering at UIC for the first time, these placement tests help in determining educational choices and career plans as well as placement in certain subjects. They are taken after an applicant receives notice that admission has been granted for the desired term. Instructions on how to sign up for placement tests are included in the notice of admission. Students are required to complete their placement tests before they can participate in orientation, academic advising, and registration. It is recommended that students complete their testing early in order to register for an early orientation date.
The University does not accept placement test results from other institutions because the UIC tests are specifically designed for UIC courses. The Pre-Enrollment Evaluation Program includes four tests: mathematics, academic writing, chemistry, and foreign language. The tests are conducted online. Results of the tests are available to students through my.uic.edu and will be provided during orientation.
