COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Response

Your health and well-being are the top priorities at NIU and Testing Services. In response to COVID-19, we're adapting our services to a non-face-to-face format. It's our goal to ensure that there are no gaps in services.

  • All current Saturday and weekday new student placement testing, except the Spanish Placement Exam, has been cancelled for fall 2020.
    • We are working with the departments to find alternative means of placing students this fall. We will update our website when we have more information.
    • Students should continue to monitor their NIU e-mail account for updated information. To determine if you need the Spanish Placement Exam please visit this webpage
  • Testing Services staff will be monitoring email and voicemail throughout this period.
  • If you have any questions or need additional information, please contact us at 815-753-1203 or testing@niu.edu.
