New Student Testing

Our new student testing program is designed to assist you in making a smooth transition from your earlier studies to your studies at NIU. We strongly urge you to take required and/or optional placement exams as early as possible, before you attend new student orientation.

You will not be able to test on your orientation date.

Register for exams.

Students with disabilities may contact the Disability Resource Center at 815-753-1303 in advance of testing to discuss testing accommodations.
