Placement Test Registration

As part of its response to the COVID-19 crisis, Northeastern Illinois University has suspended in-person placement testing and will soon have remote testing in place. In addition to addressing placement testing, please be sure to continue through as many of the important Next Steps for Admitted Students as possible.

Newly admitted students

Newly admitted students, which includes first-year students and transfer students with less than 30 credit hours, do not have to register for a placement test on this page as they have in the past. If you have declared your intent to enroll, you will receive an email from Admissions with details on your next steps.

Continuing students

Continuing students, transfer students with more than 30 credit hours and readmitted students who need to take the placement test to register for a course, please email to determine if we can arrange a time for you to take the test remotely.

Though the placement tests are untimed, students generally complete the full battery of tests in two to three hours, so please plan your time accordingly.

Preparing for the Test

It is highly recommended that prior to the test, you prepare by using our Placement Test Preparation page as a study resource.
