Pre-Cav Day Requirements

The Cav Day registration process includes a series of questions which includes a confirmation email providing potential next steps.

Additional Documentation & Placement Tests

Requirements include submitting additional documentation that'll assist with your course registration.

Potential documents include:

  • SAT/ACT/AP/GED scores
  • High school transcripts
  • Transcripts from previous institutions

All documentation can be sent directly to

NOTE: Both high school transcripts and test scores do NOT need to be official copies. 

You must complete placement testing prior to Cav Day. To determine whether or not placement testing is needed, please provide any all transcripts and test scores.

An academic advisor will contact you by phone and/or email 1-2 weeks prior to your scheduled Cav Day to discuss your options. If you'd like to discuss them sooner, email or call 815-802-8500.

You can find additional testing information on the Testing Services website.
