English Placement Test (EPT)

The video below introduces the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign English Placement Test (EPT), used to assess English ability of newly admitted international students as validated against the English language demands of our campus. It is strongly advised that students take the test before the start of instruction to receive the results in time for class registration.



If you are not a test-taker and would like to ask questions or provide comments (anonymously, if preferred) you can access our survey here.

NOTE: The EPT does not assess or in any way affect the qualification of graduate student International Teaching Assistants (ITAs). For information about English language assessment requirements of ITAs, please visit the Oral English Assessment Interview.
