Placement Test Schedule

Plan ahead for the summer and fall semester.

Placement tests are prerequisites for your first math or English course.
  • The math and reading tests are untimed and taken on computer.  The average time is 45 minutes although some may take as long as an hour.
  • The writing test is 75 minutes.
*If you have ACT scores, you may use them for English placement only.  ACT scores do not expire for English.
  • Official ACT reports must be submitted to the Enrollment Center.
  • With a score on the ACT English test of 20 or higher, you will be placed in English 101 and are exempt from the Oakton writing placement test. 
  • With a score on the ACT Reading test of 20 or higher, you are exempt from the Oakton reading placement test unless the Compass Reading test is required for a limited enrollment program.
  • If you graduated from the Glenbrook, Niles, Evanston Township, Northridge Prep, or Maine Township high schools, contact the math advisor at mathplace@oakton.edu or call 847.376.7110, for the option of direct placement into a math course.
