Submitting Official Test Scores

Hello everyone, and congratulations again on being admitted to Illinois! It is a big decision to decide what school is the best fit for you to attend. If you choose to accept your offer, your myIllini Checklist will be the best guide to your next steps before enrolling on campus in the fall.

Two important items we need from you are your transcripts and all official test scores. On the application, we asked you to self-report your scores; now we need the official scores to verify that what you reported is accurate, and so that we have them on file.

Let’s walk through how to send your official test scores to us.

What scores do I need to send?

You need to send us all scores you reported on the application.  

Generally, these are your SAT or ACT scores. For any international students that may have submitted a TOEFL or IELTS score on the application, we also require those scores to be officially sent to us as well.

How do I send my scores?

Your official scores need to be sent directly from the testing agency to our office. For instance, all SAT scores need to be sent directly from College Board to our office.  

Below are our university’s codes for the exams:
ACT: 1154
SAT: 1836
TOEFL: 1836

When I applied, I already sent my official scores. Do I need to have them sent again?

Nope! If you sent your scores when you applied, we already have them, and you do not need to resend them. Your myIlllini Checklist will let you know if your scores have been received.

What is the deadline to send my scores?

The deadline is July 1st.

This is the same deadline to send your official transcripts as well.

How will I know if you received my scores?

Your myIllini Checklist will be updated—the box will be checked off once we receive your scores.

Generally, it will take 2-3 days for our system to register that your test scores were received. I encourage you to be patient with this.

I have confirmation my scores were received, so why hasn’t my checklist updated?

We likely have your scores, but if any information does not match what you self-reported, it will not be marked off as received on your checklist. If this happens, please call our office, and we can update this for you.


As always, please let us know if you have any questions. You can leave your questions in the comments below, call us at 217-333-0302, or email us at admissions@illinois.edu.
