To prepare you to reach your educational goals, before you register for an English class or if you're a New Degree Seeking student, you may need to take a placement test.
If you meet any of the following criteria, you can enroll directly into ENG101 or ENG130. There is no placement test needed.
Have you satisfied one more of the above test waiver options? If so, the next step is to submit the appropriate score report, high school transcript or college transcript to the Harper College One Stop office. For more information about submitting these materials, contact One Stop at firstname.lastname@example.org or 847.925.6710.
Your score will match you with the right course so you succeed on your college journey. For more information, or to schedule this exam, please see the English Placement Testing FAQ.

^The ENG101 ALP co-requisite course provides students one additional credit hour of instructional support as they complete ENG101 coursework. Students that are eligible for this course will register for a “500 section” of the course and must sign up for the corresponding ENG095 “500 section” at the same time.
*Students who score at the developmental level may need further screening to determine if the ESL or the developmental pathway to English 101 is most appropriate. High school graduates who pass the ACCESS test, administered in Illinois high schools, will be referred to developmental course work rather than to ESL if they do not place into ENG 101/College English.
